I know this has been asked before, but I don't seem to be able to find it.
Besides Malaysia is there any where in Singapore, that we can get a wide variety of Platycerium. Price is an important part of the equation too.
I hope some kind soul can guide me to some better stocked nursery.

Sadly, there isn't a well stocked fern nursery locally, at least not now.

You may want to try Song Orchid.

But they ain't going to be cheap.

So, Malaysia here I come. Traffic Jams or not. Cheap petrol, cheap food and cheap plants.

Any recommendations for nurseries in Malaysia ? Specifically with good platycerium collections. How strict is customs on plant health certificates ?

Hi,
Take a drive to Ipoh for some good food then visit my friend Mr. Foong to view some of his platys. A few old pics of his platys attached. If you want even more exotic ones, go further north to Thailand. Wanna's place!
sorry, don't know about customs on plants.

Hi,

Wow, I like your fern.

Can you please kindly provide the address or direction to the nursery you mentioned?

I'm planning a trip to Ipoh and Cameron in May/June, hope to pick up some interesting fern or orchid.

Also, roughly how much in RM are the ferns?

From my personal encounters, I find that they (unless you get it from the natives) may not be cheaper than those in Singapore.


Thanks,

The address is 448, Jalan Lee Meng Hin, 31450 Menglembu, Perak, Malaysia.

I have a map for you, it is along the main road (jalan lee meng hin) at the Menglembu town center. I have marked with a red X on the map for you. Best time to meet Foong is during the weekend. It is for sure he won't be there on Mondays. PM me for his number.

Thank you all for providing the locations to nurseries in Malaysia that sells platys in abundance.
I don't think I will go to Malaysia to purchase the plants due to:
1.Limitation of 3 plants per pax
2.Distance and cost of Petrol and Toll charges.
3.Prices not much cheaper than Singapore.
4.The risk of the plants dying due to the long journey from stress.

Hi,

You may consider a short vacation trip to Ipoh/Cameron, and drop by on the way.

Usually the ferns are quite tough, normal watering and they should be able to survive the trip.

You may want to get those species that you can't find in SG nurseries.

Guess you got to visit SG nurseries to check out the species available and the price range beforehand. :)/>


Enjoy!

WF, FEF,Jimei, Kovan area nurseries,nursery opposite AMK library,

Pioneer nursery at Jalan Lekar,and opposite nursery, a few orchid specialist nurseries at that area...The Sungei Tengah/CCK/Jalan Lekar area is only if you have own car, then it is convenient to go there, or else have to walk quite far.

Usually it is coronarium, ridleyii is not common, bifacatum is common at garden centers. hybrids I donno. There aren't many varieties.

btw, I find that big coronariums have tiny hairs on its fronds which shed when you touch it.
