Plant care

The Australian tree-fern, Dicksonia antarctica, is a unique plant to cultivate. This exotic plant thrives not indoors but mainly in the garden, on the terrace or on a balcony. It can stand temperatures to circa minus 6°Celsius [42.8F], so this exotic fern is not sufficiently hardy to withstand our Dutch winters. If it freezes, this plant should be moved to a frost-proof place. In case you still want to keep the plant outdoors, you should take steps to protect the plant by wrapping it in bubblewrap and straw. The Dicksonia Antarctica needs a lot of water which must be poured from the top in between the accretion of the leaves, so that the stem of the tree-fern stays moist. A spot in half shadow or indirect sunlight suits this tree-fern. An Araflora substrate with a lot of organic building material and nutrition is the right potting soil for the Dicksonia antarctica.
