Lecanopteris lomarioides is characterized by a mass of hollow "arms" and bubbles formed by the rhizome. These are inhabited by ants in the wild. Lecanopteris lomarioides is one of the "scaly" species that occur in lower altitudes. I found L. lomarioides at around 600 meters above seal level in Sulawesi. Plants grow in full sun.
All species of Lecanopteris can be grown in an open mix consisting of Sphagnum, perlite, peat, bark and other compounds that enhance drainage. While they grow directly on the bark of older trees, in cultivation growing them mounted on bark does not work too well. Plants tend to grow extremely slow when grown that way. In cultivation all species take benefit from being fertilized regularly using Osmocote. In the wild this job is done by ants inhabiting the rhizome of the clumps. In order to avoid ugly leaf-spots, water should not be standing on the leaves over night.
