    That is some fancy lettuce!

    I'm used to seeing the more common species of these ferns, these ones in the pics took me by surprise. how much sun do these need to survive?

    Hi Newman,

    You've probably seen P. Bifurcatum and it's cultivars, that's the most common P.Platycerium around, there's another 17 species, but a lot of them are far less forgiving and finicky to grow. I'm trying now to make some hybrids, but obviously it's a very slow long road -_-

    Here's a few of the oldies that i've had for 15years+

    Thanks corky

    Forgot to answer your question Newman, they like filtered light to semi shade, depending on the species. The african ones like it more shady than the rest, the australian species like P. Bifurcatum, P. Veitchii can be grown in full sun, just as long as the shields/roots are moist.
