Ferny question
« on: July 01, 2020, 04:47:14 PM »
Can any of you fernies identify this one for me. I thought I knew what it was last year  but now it has put up sporing fronds and non sporing fronds. It is about 6 inches tall.

Shelagh, it looks like a Polypodium to me.

Maybe a Doodia, dude? Are the new fronds pink?

Barry is going for a Blechnum of some sort.

Thanks Ian and Anne.

Ian as far as I can see Polypodiums don't have separate sporing fronds.

Never had a Doodia Anne will look them up. Tell Barry I had been thinking along the Blechnum route.
