RE: Fern identification


Reggie is right, of course.  The plant almost certainly is Microsorum
thailandicum (syn. steerii).

It can be grown from spores.  It has been very slow-growing for me.  As
noted, it gets its best color in low light.  It is not more difficult than
tree ferns, but different.

It seems to grow well in regular potting media (peat, perlite) with the
addition of a little orchid bark, fine aliflor, or some other material to
enhance drainage.

Thanks Charles,
seems to be an Elaphoglossum herminieri. Are 15  (Euros) a good price?
Do you know something of the cultivation details? It's a low to medium
light plant, which need well drained moist soil.
It's currently (seems to be) in a potting mix of peat moss (and probably
earth).
What's about air humidity? Do they need a more acid or a more alkaline
soil. Peat moss is more acid.
The dealer told me that they where unable to propagate them from spores.
Are they more difficult than treeferns?

thanks
Peter
