Moving a tree fern.
Posted by Stan Hayward CA on 4/15/2017, 5:49 pm
This Cyathea brownii had gotten off to a fast start many years ago. But the drought and the big tree it grows under made it impossible to water enough. Even when I dug it u pin the wettest of all winters? It was in semi dry ground. Even the Alocasia's there wilted.
This is supposed to be the tallest Tree Fern species in the world,but thats in New Zealand. In California The Mamaku tree fern- as you see in ground in my photos will always be the biggest fern around. It seems to adapt better to less water.SLIGHTLY less..lol.
In ground and sorry looking.
Out of ground and next to pot. Dense fibrous roots.
In the pot and happy as a lark.
In pot and landscape. I bought that plant in 2002 or 2001..and it would have been a shame to see all those years wasted.
