You think, 'Wow, that is sooo cool!' of course.

Any chance of A. septentrionale spores in the seedex soon?

Lis, I have a better idea: I'll send you some when the spores ripen. Then you don't need to use your quota in the seedex.

That would be wonderful! Thanks!

Gardening on a wooded rocky ridge in the Ottawa Valley, Canada. Cold winters (-30C) and hot, humid summers. Nuts about native plants, ferns, pottery, my family, and Border Collies.

A little plant of Woodsia obtusa just unfurling its new fronds on the sand bed. This is growing in a carpet of Raoulia australis and makes a nice contrast to other plants on the bed.

Lis, still interested in spores?

BTW, here is a strange one I found:

Yes, very interested! Does your strange one show any signs of fruiting?

Tim, a belated response, but I do like the Woodsia species very much, must add some to the garden.

Adiantum pedatum is a joy to watch as the fronds unfurl, I love the pattern of airy filigree leaves as they first expand.

Hoy, your strange one looks more like Adiantum than Asplenium,  although no idea which one

Harold, I agree to that but no Adianum is native to Norway and the place I found them is very far from any garden.

Lis, I have some spores now and two small plants also. Please PM me!
The strange one had signs of sori but they looked rather empty. I'll keep an eye on it!

Mark, I have one small clump of A pedatum in my garden but wanted more! Now I have a big box full of prothalliums ;)
