An Easy Houseplant


This plant is a “Rabbits Foot Fern”. It’s large and heavy and has survived numerous owners, being moved a number of times, being ignored on a back deck, and allowed to become totally root-bound. It even lived through my repotting and separating it into two plants with a handsaw! The photo is only a small portion of the entire plant showing a new curly baby fern emerging from one of the fuzzy rhizomes that live outside the dirt and hang over the pot edge. This is the most interesting and indestructible house plant I’ve ever had!

  6. I am having trouble leaving comments. In fact, for nearly two days, even though I kept refreshing, there was no comment box at all. This was especially true for embedded comment boxes like yours. It must have been a Blogger glitch. Now I can finally leave comments, I am in awe of how mistreated this plant was, and yet it still produces new growth. Mother nature is amazing, and obviously resilient.
