A small gallery of Ferns & Fern Allies
This is a small
sampling of ferns that are cultivated here in South Florida. Our members are able to grow a wide variety of tropical ferns and will showcase them from time to time. New
as well as those that have not been in the mainstream are slowly making
their way to the general public. This is primarily being accomplished by
propagation (division of plants) and spore propagation.
propagation seems to be a time consuming task for most, one of our members, Charles
Alford seems to have the knack for producing ferns rather quickly. His
initial offerings were of all of the Platycerium, and now he has expanded his
production line to include an impressive array of desirable tropical ferns.
Other ferns come
from members who are introducing new species, and institutions who are
requesting our assistance in propagating ferns.
This gallery of ferns
represents some of the exquisite species that are grown. Please click on the
thumbnails for links to ferns.
