This one is deciduous but cannot be too dry while resting also.
Have you any luck with Platycerium elephantotis ? It does not die for me but does not grow either.

I have totally no luck with p.elephantotis. I have tried twice and fail and don't know where to find elephantotis spore anymore.

Have you tried adding fertilizer for your plant?

Hi Pino,
That's what I've been told too but actually they are great survivors which makes them easy. The hard part is that they are just plain SLOW growers. The slowest of them all.(at least for our climate here) I have 18 surviving plants at the moment. :)/>/>

So much rain these days, can't do gardening so I feel like sharing some pictures with you guys :)/>/>/>/>/>/>
Here's a picture of some Cameron Highland YG tissue cultured P.Grande. Like most plants there they are huge. Will take some skill to grow in the lowlands.

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee30/adfoo/Platycerium/06122013441YGgrande_zps6969daa8.jpg

Two pics of my P.Grande grown from spore. Notics they lack the white hairs found on the highlands ones. They are all about four years old. Question I like to ask is why do some smaller plants grow the fertile frond earlier than some larger plants??

Some bigger ones, just recovering from snail and worm attack. Good thing I spotted them in time too.

Hi Pino,
Here's a picture of a superbum almost rotted out but new leaf are coming out. There are pretty hardy, most platys would have disintegrated. For me they are really slow growing.
