OT Looking for a Petticoat Tail Fern

kenny_bln(Berlin Germany)March 8, 2009

Good Morning everyone,

I need your help to find a source for a petticoat tail fern . I am now in North Carolina and I have looked high and low. I have googled and not had much luck, does anyone have any ideas where I can order one or find one I still have 3 weeks to get it here .I though I would have had my big luck at the Southern Spring Show in Charlotte but that was a DUD .

Thanks in advance for your help

Looks like a pretty cool fern. I hadn't heard of it. Glasshouse works lists it for 6.00 as NEPHROLEPIS CORDIFOLIA TESSELATA

I have checking out all the diff kinds of ferns that can be grown in the crevices of the palm tree trunks. I have seen so many diff ones here growing that way and it looks cool!

Thanks Sultry
I found Glasshouse but there website says it can take up to 6 weeks to process an order and I only have 3 weeks . The fern is just like a boston fern but has the petticoats on the ends of the frons. I just thought there would be more suppliers for ferns , whene you google african violets , roses , and other plants there a just dozens of places to find them ,

You might want to call Glasshouse. They do say they can handle rush orders in some cases. However, you would need to e-mail or call them. If you are really in a rush, I would recommend calling.
