platycerium in singapore
« on: February 24, 2011, 10:15:37 AM »
wanna,

as mentioned, platycerium coronarium in singapore.
it can be seen easily on some of the road.
i think that most of them are planted by the national park of singapore except a few that were naturally grow in some of the forrest.

p. coronarium also known as crown staghorn due to the shape of the shield fronds.
& if you pay attention, even those that i have seen at the "forrest", the fertile fronds are narrow & there isnt any "hair" on the shield & fertile fronds.

this one is growing outside my friend house. take a look at the left, the shield fronds are turning brown, that is because it is facing hot afternoon sun.




Platycerium Ridleyi was discovered by Sir Henry Nicholas Ridley in Singapore at bukit timah forrest. He was the botanist & director of Singapore botanic garden.

We used to have many P. ridleyi in Singapore till lots of trees were chopped off & the forrest were used to build public apartments & houses.

Due to its fertile fronds which are erect like the deer's antler, it is commonly know as deer horn.

Few years back, I still see some of them in Singapore. Will get back to you when i see them as i am not too sure if they are still there or have turn into compost completely & extinct completely in Singapore......... what a shame. :(

Platycerium willinkii, relative of p. bifurcatum, I believe that they are mounted on the trees by the national park of Singapore. Will post here when I go take the shots.

K. Wanna....these were planted by our good old friend, Sandy (Talos in GCS forum) - do you know him?  I have asked him to visit you with us many times but he is always so busy that he cannot join us.  Another old timer with platy and very generous to friends - he has given me a few species that I did not have without me even asking! 8)

You should see the rest of his place - I am sure you will love it! 1/14

When you visit Sandy's place be sure to visit mine too. Our houses are just stone throw away from each other. I always enjoy occasional stroll into his "jungle" and immerse myself into the nature feel. Got to admit that sometimes hands are itching to pluck a plant or too.  m179

As doc mentioned, Sandy is indeed very generous. Most of my platys from Sandy through barter trades.
