Pyrrosia serpens

Family: Polypodiaceae

Countries: Fiji, New Zealand

Pyrrosia serpens is an epiphytic fern, which can sometimes be found growing as a terrestrial (on the ground).  Pyrrosia serpens originates from New Zealand and Fiji.  This fern flourishes in warm temperatures, from 20C to 26C; although my fern is growing OK in a temperature range from 16C to 21C.

Pyrrosia serpens requires a very humid environment, it thrives when grown inside a terrarium.

This fern displays a creeping, spreading habit, it grows to only 5cm (2 inches) tall.  For optimum results, grow Pyrrosia serpens as an epiphyte mounted on branches, or plant in compost, inside a terrarium.
