Pyrrosia lingua var. obake

Large Crested Tongue Fern



Large Crested Pyrrosia , P. lingua var obake (sometimes called cristata) is extremely easy to cultivate. I have maintained this variety for over 25 years and have never experienced any problems with its care. It is quite vigorous, and produces very large fronds. At maturity, individual leaves can be 16 inches long and 8 inches across at the crest. The fronds are very symmetrical with no twisting of the blade or crested portion. It is mostly sterile and very rarely produces fertile fronds with spores.



Attention, before purchasing any plant on line, it is wise to email me to be certain this is currently available. I have a limited number of divisions to sell annually. Click my name below to send an inquiry, thanks
