Did You Know…?

Angiopteris evecta. Marattia

The fronds of this fern can attain a length of up to 25 feet, while its “trunk” grows to a more modest height of about a meter. It is native to New Guinea and Northern Australia. It is considered to be invasive in Jamaica, and locally it appears to have strong invasive potential, as it is becoming very abundant in some of the gulches along the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island.

The new leaves/fronds emerge from the center of the stocky stem as a huge coil that is very interesting to see and to watch over a period of several weeks as it unfurls into a huge leaf. The dark brown sporangia are arranged in a row around the margin of each leaflet.
