Cyathea tomentosissima(tree fern)

£30.00
As with some of the other Cyathea species this is quite a vigorous grower, our first plant we have grown from spore produced fronds of about five feet and this is in only in five to six years. It is a very impressive plant and can show a slightly darker green than previous species , with fronds covered in orangey  brown scales so that the plant looks very hairy which is what the name means.  Issima means very and  Tomentose is hairy , when you see the plant it is a very appropriate name.  As the plant ages the new croziers get thicker and are really beautiful as they begin to unfurl, completely covered with reddish hairs.  We find that it is quite an easy plant to grow, we pot on into a good ericaceous compost mixed 50/50 with soil improver in order to open up the compost, we add slow release fertiliser and the plants thrive on this treatment.

A very fast growing tree fern from Papua New Guinea. not hardy but excellent in the greenhouse/conservatory and brought out in the summer.
given plenty of water and food when in active growth it will reward you with beautiful orange fronds
A real wow fern hails the cool mountain cloud forests and grass land, the tree fern has found its way in to Europe ,Australia and united states ,though still overall rare.
