Microsorum pteropus is a water fern which should be grown on a root or
stone, attached with fishing line until it has gained a hold. If it is planted
in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot. Easy to propagate
by splitting the horizontal rhizome. A hardy plant which grows in all conditions.
The black spots under the leaves are sporangia (reproductive organs), not signs
of disease as many believe.
