Meet the Cyathea Cooperi, commonly hailed as the Australian Tree Fern. A symbol of lush elegance, this fern showcases an impressive crown of feathery, arching fronds, making it an unparalleled centerpiece in any tropical garden or indoor haven.

How to Grow

The Australian Tree Fern flourishes in dappled sunlight, protected from harsh midday rays. It thrives in rich, organic, and consistently moist soil. Ideally suited for USDA zones 9-11, this plant requires a sheltered location, shielded from strong winds which might damage its delicate fronds.

Care Tips

Consistent moisture is key for this fern; ensure the soil remains damp but not waterlogged. If indoors, consider placing a humidity tray beneath or occasionally misting the fronds to mimic its native rainforest habitat.


With its towering presence and cascading fronds, the Australian Tree Fern serves as a captivating focal point in gardens, patios, or large indoor spaces. It effortlessly elevates the aesthetics of rainforest-themed landscapes or serene meditation corners.

Planting Tips

When planting, dig a hole that's deep and wide enough to comfortably accommodate its root ball. Enrich the planting hole with compost to provide an initial nutrient boost. Mulching around its base can help in retaining soil moisture.


To maintain its vibrant green canopy, trim away any old or brown fronds. During its growing phase, a diluted liquid fertilizer can be applied monthly to support its nutritional needs.

Pests and Diseases

While it's largely pest-free, occasionally watch out for scale insects or caterpillars. Gentle treatments like insecticidal soaps can combat these pests. Ensure the plant isn't sitting in water to avoid root rot and other fungal infections.
