Plant for ID : 23/12/2020 : Kerala: 3 images.
Please help ID this plant. The photo was taken in a garden in Kerala in Dec, 2020.
Plant is about 40-50 cms tall.
Asplenium species ??? Only a guess.
I was confused about whether it is Davallia fejeensis or Onychium japonicum. Let me check Asplenium too.
It was a wild guess from me. Probably you are correct.
Onychium cryptogrammoides Christ ??
It’s Davallia fejeensis – an exotic cultivated species that is widely grown world-wide. I have a plant here with me in Portugal, too – nice thing, related to, but a separate species from D. solida, not a variety of it as sometimes thought by a few people.
It is a fern, sorus structure is important to identify. Sori will be available in the ventral side in matured leaves (fronds)
Looks like a fern plant
Perhaps it is Asplenium fragrans
Thanks … for the ID…
It’s one of the large Davallia species – not sure which one as there are rather a lot, probably oriental?
Is this also Davallia fejeensis as at Plant for ID : 23/12/2020 : Kerala ?
Yes, definitely fejeensis. Not a shrub, not woody and 6 ft. tall!
Yes. … is correct. This reminded me of a recent posting by … at the link provided by …
