Hey just got my first Lecanopteris today (ebay score):
It's L. mirabilis the plate forming species the basal plate is only 1" with 9-10" leaves. The basal plates can get to about 10" in diameter not sure how much bigger the leaves get. I see these weird spots on all pics of L. mirabilis basal plates online. Are they similar to fern stipe scales or are they sori (spore packets) or something else? They appear to be a dark center surrounded by a filmy outer circle, I haven't tried pulling one of them off, yet...
