Itsy bitsy teenie weenie

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.

Baby tree ferns? Oct 29 2014Whichever species they are, they have grown quite nicely and are starting to get their third fronds. I’m also hopeful I still might get one or two more plants.

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.
