This fern is a very common species in moist forests of South-Eastern Australia, where it often grows in dense patches. It is very easy to propagate as it bears little miniature plants near the ends of the fronds, and if these are pegged down in potting compost, they easily take root. I have grown them in my garden for some years and they have reproduced, both by dropping new plants, close to the mother plant, but also from their spores, as new ferns have appeared in other parts of the garden. It does need keeping moist in our hot dry summers.
