Thanks mick, the strange thing is that i have two plants, one of them produces silver underside straight away yet the other takes longer?. karl.

That's interesting, my observation was based on having seen just my own plant (I have just one) and perhaps two or three others.

I'm quite jealous of your one that colours up straight away while the fronds are in the best condition.

I have had two of these planted out since last year, when the fronds brown do you cut them back as you would on say a dicksonia?. karl.

Have they gone brown Karl?...I ask because mine are still all green and I haven't even protected it. If they are brown then yes to cut back and hope for the best.

Tom, yes some have gone brown, even though they reach a decent height when established they are slow to reproduce fronds normally. karl.

They are slow growers but I understand once established the number of fronds increases.

Good to hear the larger one is pushing up, mine is just moving as well. Hopefully the smaller one will be good, they are suppose to be very tough. icon_thumleft

Tom, the large one is really coming on now!, one observation I've made is that the new season's frond's do not turn silver underneath until the following year. karl.

Yes, I have noticed that, although mine is a very slow grower. Only putting out two fronds at the moment.
