They're certainly a bit mysterious. The spores just seem to appear. Quite how, I have no idea! Very different to flowering plants, who's "ways" are not that dissimilar to animals! ☺

@jeatacake these seem to go the ‘Mary’ way about things whereas flowers are less immaculate conception-y 🤣🤣🤣

Must check on my fern. Haven't seen it since last year but it looked still to be alive. 😅

@ublaszko I didn’t know you had a fern 😜 reminds me, I’m still waiting on my Ursula’s red fern to arrive - couldn’t not have it with that name 😛

Don’t you just love those vague plant labels! Well at least it narrowed it down to fern, and not something like ‘foliage plant’ 😂

@pelly thank you Jane 😁 definitely looks like one 👍🏻

@richard.spicer.7906 well it was from Tesco so I guess the fact they new it was a plant is a bonus 😂 the people that supply them must know names of the plants so don’t understand why they can’t label them properly 😜 still, at £2.50 I can’t complain too much

You are welcome Kerry. We ought to start a campaign to get supermarkets to label their plants properly!! 👍👍

@pelly I’m with you on that! Surely it can’t be that hard for them. Someone in the supply chain knows what they’re selling 😂

Exactly. I think I might email a couple and see what sort of response I get. 🤔🤔
