Dicksonia Antarctica

United States Us

I have tried desperately to find a dicksonia antarctica on the internet from suppliers. I want one thats is at least 3 feet tall. I am in North Carolina, and I cannot find any suppliers here at all.
Any suggestions anyone?



Always plenty on eBay

You might be lucky if at 3 feet you can transplant them. I have done so, but I live in the rainforest, where the thing grows naturally. Mine was just in the wrong place and had to be shifted, if it wouldn't survive, too bad. But after months of doubt and the thing looking rather sick, it picked up and survived and is now twice as tall. But it grows in the shade. It needs shade, especially when young, and a lot of dampness. Perhaps ask for tree fern instead.
