Asplenium flaccidum - 'flaccidum' deriving from the Latin root meaning to droop/drooping. This common epiphytic fern, which is a large distinctive group of about twenty in New Zealand, is also known as Drooping Spleenwort, Hanging Spleenwort and Weeping Spleenwort. It is found growing out of the trunks of trees and out of tree ferns, with its long limp, thick leathery fronds hanging down to up to a metre long.
