Lygodium japonicum

9th September 2012

I have wanted to grow the Japanese Climbing Fern for many years but it has always been difficult to obtain and painfully expensive. Suddenly through the wonder of micropropagation it has been mass produced and I was able to obtain a small one in a 9cm pot for the price of a cup of tea. When a cup of tea is perfect it is a wonderful thing that floods the senses with joy, and that is where things currently stand.
I am shall we say, happy.
It grows from a short branching rhizome just below the soil and produces enormously long leaves that vine upwards and scramble through low undergrowth.
