    Solanopteris brunei media?

    Hi guys,

    Just got ahold of a Solanopteris brunei (S. American antfern genus). I have a rough idea of what to pot it in but was wondering if anyone has (1) cultivated this before and (2) has a successful mix. I pot Lecanopteris in a blend of my orchid mix and ordinary nursery mix. I imagine well-drained with moderate fertility is the way to go.

    Any cultivation tips concerning media, temp tolerance, or anything else would fantastic!

    Kevin

    Ask Frank, he sells them on eBay and seems to be one of the few people who grows it well. He's also on the myrmecophyte forum.

    A few tips if you read through this thread http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index...l=solanopteris shame the photos are missing but I remember it was a good looking example, but as matto suggests this forum http://myrmecodia.invisionzone.com/is the place to ask, and there is a new section for beginners as its quite in depth ( for me anyway)
