Cyathea cooperi

12th September 2006

A slender Australian tree fern. I have chosen to grow it in the conservatory, where it is rapidly outgrowing the available space, and I think that means I am going to have to build a new greenhouse, because I don't think it will like the cold and the wind outisde. If I can grow some sporelings from it, I might try.

As it gets bigger it gets harder and harder to house and we have had a series of difficult winters. In a mild year I would plant it out but for now it has to suffer the dry conditions of the greenhouse, where it struggles to produce decent fronds.
