Re: microsorum thailandicum

I'm afraid I don't know, but I recall seeing these in the fernery at Montreal Botanical Garden -- perhaps talk to the horticulturist in charge of that area? It's an intriguing plant.

Re: microsorum thailandicum

Thanks. I'll contact her nut website says this in FAQ

Do you export plants outside the United States?

**** At this time, we are sorry, we can not. The time involved with getting an inspector to the nursery and the high costs involved (usually $60-100 dollars USD for the inspections), make it hardly worth it for the customer.

I saw it in Montreal botanical too. Maybe if 10 people in Montreal wanted it?

Re: microsorum thailandicum

I see it often on eBay and you might try Asiatica Nursery.

There once was a nursery in Seattle that sold it but I can't find them listed any longer.

Re: microsorum thailandicum

There is a grower in Thailand selling it on eBay now. They say they can ship worldwide but I'd be cautious about buying this plant in winter. It will not survive temperatures below 55 degrees F (13 C).
