Product info

The Dicksonia squarrosa is found in New Zealand. For a tree fern, it grows rather quickly with about 10 to 80 centimeters per year (while on the northern hemisphere tree ferns grow considerably slower and stay much smaller). The D. squarossa is often used to construct fences, with new leaves sometimes growing from stems assumed dead. The Latin name 'squarrossa' means 'scaly' or 'rough'.

Plant care

Always water the tree fern in the crown. During warm weather, moisturize the trunk to prevent dehydration. During winter frost, bind the frond and cover the trunk with fleece. Make sure to also cover the soil around the trunk. One can put thatch in the crown. The placement of Dicksonia squarrosa is in (partial) shade, especially the trunk is best put in shade, while the leaves can endure a little more sun. Properly permeable, nutritious soil is most suitable. A (small) Dicksonia squarrosa can be placed inside, with the possibility of moving it outside during summer.
