Interesting Ferns


At the bottom of all of our oak trees we have these ferns.
I don't know what kind they are
but they only plump up like this after it rains.
In a day or two they will be all shriveled up again.

I've tried growing several types of ferns, but they never make it. I guess it's too hot here, and I rarely water anything.

I found out what type of fern it is.
Its a "Resurrection Fern." Looks like they have 'em in Texas too.
Wikipedia says: "It has been estimated that these plants could go 100 years without water and still revive after a single soaking."

So this might be the fern for you! :)

My grandmother in GA calls them resurrection ferns, too. That's pretty amazing that they can go dormant so long!
