Can someone help me in identifying this fern.
In Maldives in the month of December 2017.
Not naturally growing.
Used as ornamental plant.
It’s Phymatosorus scolopendria– a microsoroid fern, also cultivated in India, including under the mistaken synonym P. banerjiana. It is adventive in North India, West Bengal etc., but native in the south and islands.
Thank you very much, … It was so much helpful. Thank you for taking pains to collect information.
