first of all, thanks for pointing to our website :-)

Lecanopteris for us are easy plants. All the species we offer were grown from spores originally and they are doing very well. We propagate them by tissue culture. They need to be fertilized to substitute for for fertilizing through ant excrements and need to be well protected from fern scales, slugs and snails, that's all.
No need for ants.

Betreff: Re: [ferns] Lecanopteris

I had Lecanopteris carnosa (the Ant Fern) from Audrey Piggot in the 1980s.
Mine only lasted about 5 years . I seem to recall that it needs a colony of
ants in amongst its rootstock. I did try to introduce them but Birmingham ants
are a bit picky.
I have a large ants nest in a Osmunda regalis in the garden....the Osmunda
grows at a tremendous rate......is it my cultivation or is it the ants?????
