Cyathea dregei (tree fern, Boomvaring, Isikhomane) — this magnificent plant is a true joy to observe in its natural habitat.

Tree ferns can be propagated from the spores which are produced on the underside of the leaves. Sprinkle the spores on to porous material, such as moss. They must be kept permanently damp and kept in slight shade and at a controlled temperature of 17° to 20°. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
