Tree Fern Mount [Size: 200mm x 100mm]
Pickup Address: 191 Dances Rd, Caboolture QLD 4510
Welcome to Soft Brown “Dicksonia” Tree fern – in our opinion, the most versatile and water efficient, long lasting mount there is! Unlike Cork, Cyathea (Black Treefern) and Hardwood mounts, Dicksonia allows the roots to really penetrate the mount, and gives the host plant the opportunity to decide whether to burrow its roots deeply into the treefern (for moisture and protection from hot Summer wind and sun), or to run along the surface of the mount to gather dew and humidity, or even to serve simply as host for the plant to send aerial roots from – many plants do this regardless of their host.
Dicksonia, by comparison with most of the other “firm” plant mounts will retain more moisture, which means that it doesn’t have the same watering requirements (ie. daily hosing down of cork and Cyathea in Summer), which makes it more water friendly. Unfortunately, Dicksonia attracted a bad name a number of years ago, because some sellers would make mounts from the top section near the fronds which is actually toxic to the plants mounted on it. We do not cut our mounts from the top section, and growers who use the true “base” material find that it performs as well as (if not better than) any other orchid mount. Sourced from the best quality legally harvested Tasmanian Dicksonia available, this product rates second to none for quality as a mount.
Please note: These mounts are full thickness at 4cm depth, not the 2cm ones you might see sold elsewhere. Whilst the thin mounts might be cheaper, they will break down quickly by comparison. With these 4cm thick mounts, you won’t be worried about the plant needing to be remounted any time soon. As they say, you get what you pay for!
