Pellaea calomelanos

Post by Dzombo » Fri Sep 27, 2019 10:12 am

I have recently begun growing ferns quite extensively.

This is one of my favourites
Pellaea calomelanos.
Quite wide spread in SA.

This is one of the Xeric ferns. Doesn't grow in damp shade like most ferns do.
But grows in sunny rocky locations. Can take drying out.

This is in a garden:
