Prehistoric Plants

The current tree ferns are descendants of the plants that inhabited planet Earth just under 400 million years ago. They had their heyday in the Carboniferous period, 360 million years ago, creating the coal deposits we see today.

They were one of the first plants to develop a trunk and, even more impressively, they have survived until this day.

Removing them from their natural environment is strictly prohibited, with a few exceptions that some countries strictly regulate.

Today, there are few species left on the planet, and some of them still undocumented.

At The Tree Fern, we grow tree ferns using spores, helping protect these ancient species and providing you with authentic plant gems that will take your garden to the next level.
