Microsorum pteropus is an uncommon Java fern variant probably originating from Sarawak (Borneo). It has feathery lobed leaves with approx. 2-5 lobes on each side. The central and the lateral lobes are very narrow, much like those of “Needle Leaf”.
It 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.
