Asplenium onopteris

Fern hunting with Martin Rickard last year, we visited one of only five sites that this fern has been seen growing wild in the last ten years. Expressing a desire propagate to my companion, he inspected the tiny fern minutely and picked off the tiniest piece of a tiny frond for me, and low and behold look at my prothalus's now each the size of a pin head. When I have them growing properly I will give one to any of you who visit. If anyone wants to see a picture of the fern let me know or of the killarney fern that we also found.
