Back on the first of September I wrote about how I hoped I had successfully propagated tree ferns for the first time. Two months later and I’m still not sure whether I have, or if the hundred or so that did germinate have all died and these few survivors have grown from spores from other types.
Are they tree ferns? Time will tell. I will almost certainly have to wait until the growing season next year. Each frond will be bigger than the one before and I’ll finally be able to tell which species they are.
This is a very slow kind of excitement.
