Dryopteris sparsa spore

Dryopteris sparsa is seldom seen as its distribution is quite limited.  It is, however, reasonably easy to grow and is well worth cultivating if it can be given the conditions it requires.  High humidity is a priority, as is a shaded site.

In the shaded area of a fernery it is equally happy in a basket or in the ground.  When using this as a pot or basket specimen, ensure that the mixture is well-drained and do NOT overpot.  Fertilize regularly.

The growing rhizome seems to be clothed in a membranous veil through which the fronds emerge.

This spore does not require any special treatment.  Just treat like any other spore.
