Mother Fern

Asplenium X lucrosum (bulbiferum)

Mother Fern

First found in the early 1800′s, both the plant and a wrong name were passed from collector to collector. It is actually a hybrid of bulbiferum and has been labeled lucrosum in recognition of it’s money making potential. Finely cut foliage with new plants forming on the fronds – hence it’s common name. Used as a landscape/combo-container plant in California, equally at home in a 6″ pot indoors.
