I have a tree fern and have for the past two years had about 13 long fronds which have looked lovely. This year however as the fronds start to unfurl from the trunk, a sticky gum like substance appears close to the trunk and over a couple of days cuts right through the frond. Only a couple have survived this but are only a foot long and very feeble looking.
