Yeah Dave that was the old thread I had read.
I am now 99.99% certain I have bought an Australis and will post some pics up once I've had chance to resize them.

That's so long as im still alive as i promised 'Her who must be obayed' i wouldn't buy any more plants untill I've worked out where their all going :oops: :lol:
(did have me fingers crossed when i said it though icon_geek )

All the ones I saw where priced up at £29.99 including mine :ahhh!: and they all had a Dicksonia antarctica price tag on them :? but a CA card on a stick in the pot.
I did point this out but it turned out the price was the same
Im still happy with it at that price :D

Kris.
Nice Cooperii,Kris easy to see the differance now icon_thumleft

Sorry again San for hijacking the Thread, but hopefully this might help you as it seems a CA is a bit more tolerent of frost and may help you decide for over wintering factors icon_thumleft

Yes mine had the Dicksonia antarctica tag on too, but I knew instantly that they were not Dicksonia antarctica's, then saw the CA tag in the pot icon_thumright

I'm sure mine was £19.99, but it could have been £29.99, it was quite a few weeks back :lol:
