Aglaomorpha is a genus of mostly giant ferns. They like perfect drainage, bright light, and good air movement.
Aglaomorpha brooksii is a recent introduction. Reggie Whitehead brought a plant in, and shared the spores. It is very similar in appearance to Aglao. splendens, but the rectangular spore patches are subdivided, or irregular, in brooksii. A beautiful, large fern.
Aglaomorpha (Thayeria) cornucopia is named for the litter catching base of the frond, reminiscent of a horn of plenty. Debris builds up, and the fern sends roots into the bowl. Fronds are formed on small stumps, which arise from the rhizome. Another interesting feature is the nearly naked rhizome, a feature of mature plants. Also, spores are borne on the end of the frond, which is decorative.
Aglao. (Merinthosorus) drynarioides is a large fern. This species may be a little more difficult to cultivate than most aglaos.
