Huperzia phlegmaria 'Philippine Black Stem Tassel'
Huperzia spp., commonly referred to as 'Tassel Ferns', are an epiphytic or lithophytic genus found throughout the world. With beautiful, cascading foliage, and a variety of textures and shades, Tassel Ferns are a stunning addition to any hanging space.
Tassel ferns require a shaded position outdoors, that is sheltered from harsh weather conditions. Being epiphytes/ lithophytes, Tassel Ferns require a very course potting mix, generally consisting of medium-course grade bark, perlite, and/ or coir chips. Water regularly, allowing the water to flow freely from the bottom of the pot (do not let sit in water). Fertilise with a half strength, general purpose fertiliser in spring to encourage rigorous growth. Tassel ferns are very sensitive to having their roots disturbed, so avoid repotting until it has well and truly outgrow its current pot.
PLEASE NOTE: All pictures are of plants currently for sale or previously sold at The Tropic Gardener. The plant photographed should be used as an indication of size and quality only and may not be the exact plant you receive. Form and colour will vary slightly.
All Tassel ferns are posted in their pots, to avoid any undue stress on the plants.
