Drynaria rigidula 'Whitei'

 

Drynaria rigidula 'Whitei'

This rare basket fern, like most in its family, has two types of leaves: tall, green fertile fronds that produce spores and can grow to 3ft in length, and short, sterile ones that grow around the base of the plant. Grows well in a pot (use soiless, coarse and porous medium) or on a slab of tree fern; water frequently. Can tolerant higher levels of sunlight than most of its relatives buy harsh afternoon light can scorch its leaves. Dormancy period can occur from December to March when it sheds its leaves. If this happens, water less frequently but ensure media around roots remain moist.
