    N. spathulata - definitely a lowlandable highlander!


    N. gracilis

    And some Ant Farms in all of their leafy splendor:
    Lecanopteris sinuosa



    Lecanopteris pumila.

    Thanks for the nice words, muchachos!

    As to the lecanopteris, I 've found that treating them exactly like any lowland swamper nep (raff, amp etc.) yields best results. While I my other ant plants do not like it too humid (I had one quite large Myrmecodia sp. New Guinea rot away in a very wet terrarium), all my ant ferns (lecanopteris sinuosa, l. pumila, l. luzonensis) absolutely thrive in steamy surroundings.
    I keep them in the shadehouse, which is open to the elements. It's been raining continuously for five or six weeks, and the lecs have almost doubled their leaf production, making taller and taller leaves, all brimming with spores, too.

    How do you grow yours?

    My initial knee-jerk reaction to this would be "get them away from the highlanders asap!" When my highlanders really start taking off (around late October), that's the time the lecanopteris start pouting; and henceforth, nothing less than a warm and womb-y terrarium will do until May.

    really and thats odd cause the person i got it from says they have done wonderfully with his highlanders. he must be the exception, will move it in with the D. falconerii and paradoxa this afternoon, they are in about a constant 85F with 90% humidity

    ...What's that weird and vaguely fungoid looking thing in the bottom picture?
