The Licorice Fern is a late-fall to spring growing epiphytic fern which inhabits cool-humid and shady locations. It is often found on the north side of trees, rocks, logs, gutters or anywhere mosses grow. Once the air warms up and becomes drier, the leaves often dry-up. The roots don't quite taste like licorice candy but are something to gnaw on while you hike for a bit of flavour.
