This plant was growing at the entrance gate of a village where we live about 10 years ago. The leaf in the picture is dried, pressed between pages of a book and then forgotten. The plant is a climber, with wiry stems and very strong. Left unchecked and it could overwhelm a small tree. I don't know if the plant still grow at the site, but by the look of it, it is considered as a weed.
The pic is a scanned image, so the pic you are seeing is the actual size. Any possible of an ID or maybe a guess?
oh how cool Tanya... never woulda thought there'd be a climbing fern... again, the plant looks very delicate, nice pretty leaf shape, frills galore... almost like the fern world's answer to the floofies.
That is cool. I would like to see it try to get a foothold in my part of the world. I thought there was a variety of this in the NW part of the US. Maybe Mike will chime in here and set me straight. (snicker)
I think in colder climate where they are allowed to die back and "sleep" in winter, they will not pose a problem. This would look nice climbing in a balcony, trellis in summer. I like the foliage too, that is why I collected several of the leaves and pressed them, just never get the time to put them on display .
I wonder if the spores are still viable after 10 years? Hmmm....:check:
That is neat , I would try the spores , would be cool if they would sprout . let us know if yu do try them . Gin
I would try the spores too, Tanya. That would be hella-cool if they worked!
OK, I will try them when I get back my "garden". For now, its under the control of my husband busily putting back the shade that was blown away by the storm 2 weeks ago.
I'll post back after several days... now, how long does it take for the spores to germinate anyway??
It'll be a few weeks at least. Some can take almost two months.
