Asplenium bulbiferum – Mother Fern (4″ pot)


Also known as Mother Spleenwort, this is a tufted evergreen fern with divided light green fronds. The apex of the fronds grow bulbils that make the frond droop with the weight, and once the bulbils reached 2 inches big, they fall off onto the ground growing into new ferns after the soil becomes moist. The feathery foliage is beautiful, displayed nicely in a hanging basket or growing in a shady spot in the garden.

Ships in 4″ pot.

The bulbils are easy to propagate.
