Cuttings from a Rabbits Foot Fern taken last year. Finally growing. I just cut off pieces of the hairy rhizomes and pegged them on top of the soil. Seems to be growing away nicely 😄 #rabbitsfootfern #fern #davallia

I have had one of these for about 15 years, confined to the same pot the whole time, it trails down the side of our bathroom mirror cabinet, about 70 cm long. Also know as the monkey tail fern and I can see why.

Sounds like it’s done very well Erin 😄 I’ve not had any experience with these so hopefully I can keep it happy enough to grow bigger. The rhizomes seems starting to migrate up the side of this pot. Mist it a couple of times a day. I’d like to keep it in the bathroom but it’s quite dark unfortunately 😕 @erino

Thank you John - i thought it was dead a couple of months ago as nothing was happening and then all of sudden a couple of fronds appeared! 😄 @johninbrighton

You have proved to be the most patient of gardeners propping this one, it takes Forever! I stuck kangaroo and rabbits foot together on pot and they both took and sprouted at exactly the same time, found that interesting 💚

😄🙏🏼💚 It does seem like forever! I think I took these cuttings in April or May last year. So this is almost months progress. Keeping it lightly mister at the moment to see if I can keep it going. How interesting your kangaroo and rabbit ferns took at same time 👏🏼👏🏼 @tinaaune
