This little-known walking maidenhair fern species is from a 1999 Todd Lasseigne collection in China's Cang Shan mountains near the town of Dali. This is a particularly narrow leaf selection, with fronds that for us never exceed 1" in width, while reaching 1' in length. As the fronds on the 3" tall clump mature, new plantlets form where the tips touch well-prepared soil.
