Ferns and Fern Allies

Lecanopteris luzonensis

Note the scaleless rhizome

Over the last years some non-carnivorous plants attracted our interest, such as Ant-ferns (Lecanopteris) or Staghorn ferns (Platycerium). Both make ideal companions to grow together with Carnivorous plants such as Nepenthes in the greenhouse.

Lecanopteris Another speciality we offer almost exclusively are so called "Antferns" of the genus Lecanopteris. In the wild these fascinating plants live within a symbiotic relationship with ants that live inside their hollow rhizomes.

Platycerium We propagate a growing number of species out of this group of showy plants within our tissue culture lab and try to make more and more of these available to growers.

Solanopteris The South American analogy to the genus Lecanopteris. Another antfern.
