'Fern' 'fern' 'fern' 'til her daddy takes the T-Bird away, FERN! FERN! FERNFARE!

2015.9.13

シダも集めている。どうやら原始的な植物が好きらしい。
I am collecting ferns, too. I seem to like primitive plants.

アオネカズラ。この緑色の太い根っこが魅力的。これはゆっくりしか育たないのに、夏には葉を落とす傾向がある。今は葉が戻ってきた所。
Polypodium nipponicum. The green thick roots are appealing. This is a slow grower, and tends to lose leaves in summer. Now, leaves are coming back.

ヒトツバ。硬い、濃緑の葉が中々渋い。葉が育つにつれ色が濃くなってくる。
Pyrrosia lingua. I look cool with hard dark-green leaves. Green gets darker as each leaf grows.



コウモリラン。一番奇妙な形だ。これは育てて数年以上になるが、本体から垂れ下がる胞子葉が着いたのは始めてだ。
Stag-horn fern, Platycerium wandae? This is the eeriest. I've been keeping this more than several years, and this is the first time it had sporophyll that is hanging from the body.


イワオモダカ。どんどん増える。何度も株を真っ二つにして親戚や友人にあげたが、数年で元の鉢一杯に育つ。
Pyrrosia hastata. Fast grower. I divide the plants into halves and gave the half to my relatives and friends several times, but in few years it filled the pot again.

シノブ
Davallia mariesii Moore ex Baker.

このシダは日本では百年以上も愛好されている。夏にシダを風鈴と一緒に吊って涼をとるのだ。
This is a fern that has been very common in Japan for hundreds of years. People hang small ones with wind chimes to feel cool during summer.
