August 22nd – Rabbits Foot Fern

Rabbits Foot Fern

Pictured here is an ambitious rhizome from a nearby Davallia, or Rabbit’s Foot fern.

These plants are generally grown as ornamentals, often suspended in hanging pots, however this Davallia was free-range, and this rhizome was making a break for it.

This specific Davallia variety is likely to be D. solida or D. pyxidata. They are widely found in Queensland and New South Wales and require infrequent watering.

This is another photo that was delayed in being posted for a number of reasons. After settling on the photo, after identifying the type and strain ….. Flickr decided to play up.
