Post Re: Tree ferns after 40 years
A late spring update, through the rain most ferns grow exstreem well this year in combination with groundwater, am very pleased also with the rapid growth of large C.medullaris, now working on frond number 7.

D. fibrosa, makes his final year on that place, the leaf hits the shade cloth ceiling,
Photo, 6 - "16,
Image

Image

Blecnum species flushing nice,

Blechnum nudum,
Image

Image

Blechnum gibbum,
Image

Image

Blechnum brasiliens,
Image

Image

New Caledonian species also have a new crown, Photo's 6 - "16,
Image

[Bottom right ] creeping C.dealbata slowly coming up !
Image

Image

C.atrox var. atrox and C.brownii var. go well after a lot of pruning the shrubs,
Image

Image

Image

The pruning of the roots of the C.australis has been successful, the frond is getting longer and darker green, viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9298&start=15
Image

The D. squarrosa is also going well again grow after drying out last year 12 new leaves,
Image

Image

Image

The C.cooperi / revolvulum should also get a larger container, the frond remains less, in the foreground the new flush of B.tabulare,
Image

Image

And the beautiful colored leaves dryopteris erythrosora,
Image

Polystichum vestitum also comes back nice this year,
Image

Image

The D. antarctica should have more light, in the autumn I have to prune the big tree, it takes all the light off and so I can not use 1/4 of my garden for the tree ferns !,
Image

An image of the greenhouses and the last piece of the garden,

And the last picture of this series, C.medullaris busy with frond No. 7

Nice Eduard. Great to see the medullaris still thriving. No doubt one of the largest and nicest in your region. I love the Polystichum too - very distinctive. It is funny how easy it is to pick out that crown of fronds on the D. squarrosa - they have a very definite appearance. You really grow TFs well.

Thanks guys, we have this year a good year in terms of weather for the ferns / tree ferns and we're only halfway :wink:

In a few weeks a update of the special species.

Eduard.

Thanks Mau, I work with a lot of passion with the tree ferns :wink:

Here is an update on the special tree fern species,


The D.blumei doing good, there is a big difference between summer and winter leaves, winterleaves are grow much bigger,
Image

Image

Image

The C.robusta now makes more volume and look nice, until next year he will remain in the conservatory,
Image

Image

The C. cunninghamii stays within, these stops growing once it comes out! Will first have to be larger,
Image

Image

This beautiful tree fern species D. lanata I have from a British tree fern friend end 2015,
Image

Image

Now starting to grow nicely and also a little reddened,
Image

[The Brainea insignis did not make it, too much breakage during transport]

C. spinulosa working on his trunk height,
Image

And finally the C. Howeana which I took over from Bart now doing good,
Image

Image

Eduard.

Eduard, you are the man! Love the hairs on D. blumei - that's about as fuzzy as you can get. I'm guessing the D. lanata is from Steve P. He was a generous man and is sorely missed.

Amazing C. Howeana, I love this 'bald' cyathea, so distinctive rhizone.

Post Re: Tree ferns after 40 years
All looking fantastic Eduard ... love that Cyathea howeana!

Good to see the Dicksonia lanata growing so well. I read recently that the two varieties of lanata are now considered to be subspecies, so it seems your plant is now D. lanata ssp. hispida !
(see http://www.nzflora.info/factsheet/taxon/Dicksonia_lanata.html and http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/0028825X.2014.928331)

Sorry to hear the young Brainea insignis didn't survive the journey ... unfortunately the plant here hasn't produced any spore yet this year but you will be the first to know if it does!

Post Re: Tree ferns after 40 years
Thanks Tom, George and Chris, I'm happy with the D. lanata ssp. hispida, beautiful fern that wil not be too large in the future , and of course the C. Howeana :wink:

The spores of the Sadleria are germinated well, next week I'm going to put them greater in the propagator, and make some pictures.

@ Tom every time I write something or read on this forum I think about him, a great loss...

@ We wait and see Chris I had already indicated to stop sowing spores after the Sadleria's but who knows!

 
Eduard.

WOW, Gefeliciteerd!
Really nice fern collection, and well cared.
I wasn´t able to 'surf' for now, trough the 23 pages of this tread. Do you have any of the treeferns [xaxins] from South Brazil/

Hi Edward,
congratulations on your birthday!
I did not think that you will, congratulations already 60! I wish I'd been there, because your ferns are very impressive!

Happy

Hi Eduard;

There is no doubt that growing your tree ferns rejuvenates you, you look younger :wink: . I wish other more than 20years work with tree ferns. Congratulations :D
