Thanks! I only have one L. luzonensis, but it has had problem few weeks after I received it. Any help would be great. I really apprecaited. I hope it can make it!

06/04/2005 First day I received it!

i have minimal experiance. ionly have one and fortunatly its growing really well.

actually yours didnt look to healthy from day one. how are you growing yours?
Yeap! That's what I thought when I received it. I did not consider it was very healthy tho. I use 100% sphagnum moss. Do you mind to tell me where did you get yours?

i got it from Harry at Cloud Jungle Epiphytes. i grow it in LFS, keep it damp but not wet in fairly high humidity(~75%) and in my slightly cool house hold temps 65 night-80ish day
Are the Ant ferns true ferns or just fern ally?
rattler_mt, Same place! Thanks for info...

superimposedhope, My understanding that Ant fern is ture fern. Correct me if I am wrong!
Harry is a good guy. ive done quite a bit of trading and buisness with him latly. maybe it had a rough time in shipping.

Joe, as far as i know its a true fern. but info is scarce so im not 100% sure

Harry has always been a good trader and businessman to me. I'm sure it was a shipping thing or an accident.

I've noticed that alot of ferns don't have any info on the net. The Crocodyle fern is the same way.

Harry has good ant plants for sure! I think it might be my mistake. It was too wet probably. I got my M. echinata and H. formicarum from him too.

Joe, You are right! Not very easy to get useful info online about ferns.

even a well packed plant can have a rough time in shipping. getting set in a to hot or to cold vehicle can do alot of damage even if packaged right if it sits there long enough. i fully believe Harry didnt do it on purpose, he is to nice a guy.
