Cyathea Medullaris over view.

I thought I would do a update on my 3ft C Medullarsi I purchased at the start of the year.
It as started to get its roots in to the soil and pushing out fronds.
Hopefully more fronds this year. :D

Cyathea Cunninghamii

I was wondering if anyone knows how best to look after C Cunninghamii ? I have grown C Cunninghamii before but have always lost them in winter even when kept frost free and well watered.

Cyathea dealbata creeping rhizome

I have a 2ft trunk dealbata and a dealbata with a trunk that is about 2inches. I have been reading that occasionally you can get a very rare creeping rhizome form, my small C Dealbatas crown grows horizontally every year which leads me the think that I have got a creeping form :D as well as the norm...

Dead Cyathea Medullaris

Today I checked on some of my tree ferns, so far I have binned three due to this winter. Today I noticed that one of my 1ft trunked Medullaris has died so I pulled all the dead croziers out of the crown to see that the central core had started to rot.
What a waste of a tree fern.

Cyathea root pruning...

I would like to make my fern a bit lighter than it is now. I know air layering will not work (or will it?) So I decided to make the rootball 25% smaller. Can this treatment kill the plant?

Should I get a Cyathea Australis

Simon has some in his sale for just over £20 with a 5-10cm trunk, which isn't much at all. I read they are suppose to be hardy to -12C!? What do you reckon guys, is it worth a punt?

Cyathea's without light?

My Cyathea is currently in the garage due to the frost we had the other night. There is no light. How long can I leave it there without it suffering? I plan to bring it back out tomorrow.

I am thinking about buying a Medularis that will come in a 10litre pot. I have a few spare 40litre pots, would it be ok to put it straight into one of these?
