Walking Fern- Asplenium rhizophyllum

 

Walking Fern is native to North America. This fern is found in green areas and those with limestone. The walking fern grows up to two feet tall. The Walking Fern produces spores on the underside of its leaves. When the spores from the bottom of the walking fern touch the damp soil beneath the fern, a new fern is produced from the spores that contact the damp Earth. Hence, the name "walking fern" was dubbed upon this plant!This plant has narrow leaves that taper to a point. The spores that the fern produces grow only on the underside of the front of the fern. This is a plant that almost literally moves by itself! It will get right up and walk away from where it was at and leave a trail of similar plants in its path! The Walking Fern is a unique plant species that few have seen and it can be hard to come across. This fern has a unique symbiotic type of relationship with the limestone and is found where limestone occurs with the moss. This fern enjoys soil that is moist and not too dry. However, the walking fern does not do well being over watered. This is a plat that doesn't like muddy soil and does prefer soil with more rocks. The leaves of this fern are gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing. They have a pretty pointed and narrow front that is just beautiful!

Just what it needed

My area around my outbuilding lacked color so I ordered ferns, they are doing well and it really makes my building area pop now. TY

Name fits

The name fits this fern. We planted it under a tree and the fronds look as if they are walking along the ground
