    Utric ? Fern ? Something Else

    Hey Everyone

    This started growing with my N Lowii a couple of months ago. At first I plucked it out, but then decided to let it grow a bit. Right now it is about two inches tall. I thought it might be a terrestrial utric any thoughts ?

    No flowers as of yet





    Thanks

    Fern, possibly a young Polypodium - they're quite common germinating from LFS & on cork mounts. The white fur at the base of the stems is the indicator of it being a newly emerging fern.

    I'd pot it up in it's own LFS so it doesn't shade your Nep, ferns grow pretty fast compared to them and most Polypodiums get really big pinnate leaves. Wiki: Polypodium Ferns

    The orchid greenhouse I volunteer at has an infestation of these, is the rhizome white and hairy/fuzzy?
    The rhizomes are near impossible to rip out entirely and break off easily resulting in multiple new sprouts... Once it takes hold it really takes off, get it out while you can.

    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This one is young, it will get much larger likely with more typical fern shaped leaves as it ages.

    sounds like you can send it to exo or tali if you want to get rid of it lol.
    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

    Thanks everyone ... I pretty much thought it was a fern, but was unsure.

    The N. Lowii was from *, it is likely a hitchhiker from them

    That being said, I am not a fern grower, though I might consider this one if it a) stayed small, b) kept the leaves it has now (they are rather pretty). That being said, if anyone is interested in a trade PM me. I am pretty open to anything CP, though not so much utrics and common Sarrs and I have more rotudifolia, intermedia and filiformis than I know what to do with. It's a fern so I am not expecting an Adrian Slack in exchange, so tell me what you are willing to offer.

    If trading doesn't work out and you have to have it, I would also be willing to give it away for shipping.

    It's all good.

    I suppose that I should put this up in the trading post area, but since you guys have been so helpful, I thought I would give you first shot.

    Thanks
    Nicole
