Just discovered my Paku gajah fern had spouted new leafs after laying dormant for like more than a year.

Wonder how long before it reaches this size (this pic taken from the internet)

tks!


...........all things big comes from small beginning!
Did not expect a dead looking tree stump to resurrect, and may end up a giant amongst the usual small manageable ferns....
Ever thought growing it like a Staghorn? That will be a real talking point! :)/>
Anyway, it's awesome.

Yo,The carpet was stagnant for a long while, so did not show any attention to it and left it in a shaded corner.Last I checked, saw a couple of baby stags with thru 2 -3 mini long leaves. Was excited, bu prepare myself for another long wait to see if they will flourish just like yours so easily. In the container, also found several very long strand type of fern like a water hydrilla... U know what r those?

Hi aaatop,
I remember the first time I grew platy from spores, I got so excited I saw some that is extremely fast growing but they turn out to be bird nest ferns. Don't ask me how they get in there but I tell you it is a bummer growing platies. I have learn quite a lot and I am now doing Ridleyi again, green carpet is only 2mm at about 4 months. keep u posted.

I know, patience is only that much, can't wait forever for the platies to grow up, need to keep yourself occupied with something else too. I try not to check on them else can easily get discourage. So my policy is survival of the fittest. Green carpet is 50% hope, rest is luck.

You know what xl planter said has a definite possibility . If my p.coronarium can rain spores on me, imagine the fern of that size in the pic. I think most people know what spores are?????

Hehe.... I hope all know what r spores!
Seriously I dun think u want the Paku to rain spores at yr place, could turn out a biological health hazard, dun know if the Paku spores r good for the body, but If a Lingzhi is the size of the Paku n it rain spores, I would want that! Hehe
