Pellaea atropurpurea

12th September 2006

Cool blue green pinnules and jet black stems , I was worried about its hardiness, so it went into the greenhouse for winter, but it lost a lot of leaves, and it has done far better outside (although there is a risk that a hard frost will do away with it completely).

Last year I kept it rather dry, fearing that winter would carry it off if it was wet. This year I have kept it wetter, and it has grown more vigorously and I think that probably means it will withstand the winter better.
