Splendid, adaptible tree-fern
Cyathea cooperi has a slender trunk usually about 7.5-15cm (3 - 6 inches) thick, sometimes growing to 10m (30 feet) high, and puts on growth very quickly. The fronds typically will reach about 3m (9 feet) long on a mature specimen, but, as with most tree ferns, they will be significantly stunted if kept in a pot.
This beautiful tree-fern will grow well in dappled (but not deep) shade, but also does well in some sun, even in hot climates, as long as the moisture supply is adequate. It also does relatively well in exposed, windy situations.
These features make it a splendid tree fern for a wide variety of sites.
