I have 3 Dicksonia antarctica tree firns. Last year all had really good growth of around 15 - 20 throngs. This year two of them only have 5 throngs currently where as the other has the usual 15 - 20 throngs. There does not seem to be any damage to the crown. Will the the two firns with 5 throngs catch up or is there something that I need to be aware of.

Thanks in advance for your help.

On plant Dicksonia antarctica



Probably a result of micro climate around those two during the winter - they should recover, hopefully.

How do I say thanks?
