syn: Acrostichum glaucum seeds
Elaphoglossum glaucum, a magnificent fern from the rainforests of Central America, which mostly grows epiphytically on tree trunks. The leaves are shiny green and rather elongated.
Sow the fern spores on the peat pellets.
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.
Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 77 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-72 F. The resulting micro-climate provides ideal conditions for germination.
Soon you will see a fine green layer on the surface. From the prothallia the small fern plants will develop with high humidity.
price is for approximately 50 seeds
