Description

Easily mistaken for a cycad, this tree fern sports a thick, upright trunk to about 1 m tall and and supports crown stiff golden-coloured leaves. Blechnum auratum is fairly unknown in cultivation currently, but is certainly a plant with enormous ornamental value! It requires sun or light shade. It is native to the high Andes between Colombia to Bolivia.

Height: 1m+, 40"+

Hardiness zones: 9-10

Seeds per pack: 20 spores (spores are very tiny)

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors.  Soak a seed-start mix with boiling water to kill parasites. Allow to drain and cool for about an hour. Tap the spores onto the surface of the growing mix. Cover the pots with plastic, or place in a clear plastic bag. Place in a well lit window or under grow lights, but not in direct sunlight. Water from a bottom tray as to not disturb the spores. Keep at 20-22 °C, 68-72 °F.  The ferns will start to germinate in a few weeks, though could take a few months to form little plants. Patience is required, though they are well worth the wait!
