Common Name: Australian Tree Fern
Cyathea cooperi has a slender trunk with distinctive "coin spots" where old fronds have broken off the trunk. It's fronds are bright green and lacy and tend to be very fast growing.
Tree-ferns grow best in high humidity and high soil moisture conditions. It is important to use good-quality mulches and to top them up regularly as this will not only keep the soil moist but also provide nutrients to the shallow root system. Cyathea cooperi usually responds well to organic fertilizers and well-rotted animal manures as it tends to display particularly vigorous growth.
Grows 4-6m tall and is full sun-tolerant, though prefers dappled light.
