Blechnum articulatum (Mt Lewis Water Fern) spore
This beautiful Water Fern is endemic to high altitude rainforests in the north-east of Queensland where it is found along creek banks, and on rocks in the watercourses.
One of Australia's most desirable ferns, Blechnum (bleck num) articulatum (are tick you lay tum) is fairly easy to grow. It does well in a large container, or in the ground, where it needs shade and humidity. Give it a well-drained area in the garden with plenty of compost. As it is a plant of the high altitude rainforests, it does best in the cooler months of the year if it is grown in the lower areas of the tropics. The bright red new growth changes to pink, and then to a shiny, light green.
Growing to a height of 150 cm it produces a short trunk to about 40 cm. Plantlets are produced on the trunk as the parent plant ages.
This spore does not require any special treatment. Just treat like any other spore.
