Hi Eduard, I hope they grow slowly before the summer end, staying in the luxury nursery container to sit through
But it will be a problem once come out of it in the next growing season, I have many ferns surrender to the extreme summer this year. :x

This summer witness the most difficult temperature for any part across my country, in my province, it breaks the meteo record, enduring 50 35C+ days by yesterday, 14 40c+ included. The good news is the typhoon is coming soon and max.temperature hardly jump to 30c.

Here is the what looks after sitting through this harsh summer.

Some update of this fern, it's winter, yesterday it snow for the first time of the year, the temperature drops to 0C.
inside the container supported by a heat mat, the temperature keeps at 15-20C, so it also grows at winter.

Hi George

Looking good. They will start to develop the more complex frond shape in the next couple of seasons. Around the time it starts to form a trunk and bigger root mass then it will develop larger mature fronds.

Thanks Mark, i can't wait. This treefern is the first product based on the experience of Steve Pope(also spore donator) and your magnificent website.

Here is a hard-to-reach fertile frond from the parent fern of George's propagated youngsters...

It's only taken about five years from sowing to produce this stocky 1-metre trunk...

Don't forget it has the advantage of a humid glasshouse and all-year-round growth - having an artificially friendly climate makes all the difference...

Hard to believe when looking at that massive trunk and thick stipe bases, but it's only about five years since it germinated from a spore pot... which is about the maximum indoor lifespan for my faster growing varieties. After that, they run out of headroom.

It is in the Aloshophila clade, it's hard to believe in a such a rate nor even can imagine in a climate as Borneo rainforest!
You shed shame on the Sphaeropteris spp. :D

This typical white to grey scale obviously indicate a Sphaeropteris spp. is it your aragamensis?

No, I was wrong about the early 'Alsophila' ID - it is from a Mexican spore sample, but is clearly a rapid growing Sphaeropteris type after all. As was the aramaganensis. We're no nearer a reliable Cyathea ID than 'Mexican tree fern', I'm afraid!
