More ferns
« on: September 06, 2020, 09:49:59 PM »
The extreme hot summer in this year resulted in much damage to the ferns in our
unwatered meadow garden. The plants in the garden by the house look better due to
regular watering.
 Phyllitis scolopendrium spores regulary at several places in the garden
 and some interesting forms appear.
 P.s. Furcatum is from a Dutch Nursery and grows rather slow.
 Davallia canariense is not hardy in our climate.

Didn't know, that Cheilanthes fendleri develops a wandering habit.

furcatum is a gamma irradiated Phyllitis scolopendrium, it's not a natural form, dutch are playing with plants like others with viruses...
It'll be fun to see if in few years it keeps its forks. Under patents with Terra Nova.
Another form with less forked leaves is also in the trade but difficult to source.

Yann, thank you for your interesting post, sorry, that I didn't find it before.
Ferns are especially valuable in winter time.

Hi Rudi,
nice ferns!
I just saw a pic of the Cheilanthes eatonii in the talk on The Botanics (RBGE) by Petra Palkova for the West of Scotland Group.
What a coincidence!
cheers

Oh ! Pyrrosia lingua is very amazing; is it a xerophytic species?
 his little neighbor is Anacampseros? it differs slightly from my Anacampseros papyracea which does not have this 'club' effect

Hi Veronique and Fermi,
many thanks for your friendly comments. In literature Pyrrosia lingua grows in China, Korea,Taiwan and Japan among
dryish rocks and on tree trunks. I cultivaßte my plant potted in a lean mixture plunged in the sand bed, runners start
to root in the sand.
The "Little Neighbour" is a piece of a bigger Helichrysum coralloides plant.

there is a kind of convergence of form between Helichrysum coralloides (very beautiful and uncultivable for me, I imagine) and Ancamsperos papyracea .., but nothing to do with ferns!

 your ferns are superb.
 for Asplenium solopendrium, I am attached to the natural form with simple leaves.
however 'Furcata' looks bigger than the original hope, right? i like large ferns. I have a whole pot of 2 cm seedlings that are too stuck together, but I cannot transplant them without making them burst.


I would like to grow Coniogramma emeiensis one day, when I can find it at an affordable price. Does anyone here succeed in his cultivation?

Thank you Veronique, my A.s.'Furcatum' grows rather slow and measures now 15 cm.
The Scolopendriums appear at many places in our garden from spores with sometimes
interesting forms.
Maybe the Van Driel Nursery offers your Coniogramma. it is a pity, that he doesn't send
his plants by post.
