Vitroplus launches novel fern

The variety is a crossing between a Phlebodium and a Pyrrosia fern and completely new to the market

xPhlebosia ‘Nicolas Diamond’ is the name of the new fern. The leaves are green and slightly curled at the ends. By having Pyrrosia as one of the parents, the plant is more cold and drought-tolerant. By having Phlebodium as a parent, the plant grows faster. The ‘Nicolas Diamond’ is grown for pot sizes from 12 cm

The Dutch nursery sells 26 million ferns a year and exports to 48 countries
