General Information and Care: Pyrrosia christii is another absolutely stunning epiphytic fern that does magnificently in terrarium conditions. This species is one of the larger ones that Glass Box Tropicals offers with fronds reaching up to 8" in length with the stem. However, if you can find an area to fit it into your tank, you will definitely be please with your choice. The fronds are this species are light green with dark green venation. Additionally, they have some brown pubescence around the leaf margin that really adds additional interest. This species also seems more prone to forming a mound instead of wandering around like some of the other rhizomatous species. To get the best growth, this species seems to love tree fern fiber plaques/mounts.
