Arthromeris himalayensis

12th September 2006

An evergreen fern that I got from China. I have no idea what to expect from it.
The only reference I have found says "mossy tree trunks or terrestrial on mountain slopes at 1600-2600m alt. N.India,Bhutan, Tibet, Yunnan and Burma." (Kunio Iwatsuki, 'An enumeration of the pteridophytes of Nepal'.)

In the two years that I have grown it, I have not managed to find out anything more about it. In the greenhouse here it has been appealing (which is difficult to quantify), and it has tolerated a few periods rather dryer than I would have liked. It is a good thing!
