I remember when I was a kid (early 60s) I would see fern tiki in many gardens or outdoor entryways all arould Hawaii. If I recall fern tikis were relatively inexpensive and very available at one's neighborhood Garden Supply store but they we far from permanent. Although they could last for a handful of years once they started rotting in Hawaii's wet outdoor weather they were tossed. They are not available as they once were and they were not replaced. Pershaps this is another reason to the relatively absence of tiki in Hawaii today. This to me is a big mystery that I'm slowly working on.

A few more ads from a store called The Akron in southern California featuring the Fern Wood Tikis.







More proof that these things were relatively cheap and abundant on the mainland back in the 60s.
