FAIRCHILD SCIENTISTS SUCCESSFULLY PROPAGATE TWO CRITICALLY IMPERILED NATIVE FERNS

Thursday, May 21, 2015

Coral Gables, FL, May 22, 2015 – After two years of diligent propagation efforts, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is pleased to announce the addition of two critically imperiled ferns to its living plant collections: Ctenitis submarginalis and Thelypteris sancta. Both ferns were grown from spores collected in Miami-Dade County in 2013. Spores from the Ctenitis submarginalis were collected right before the population crashed that same year, and the small Thelypteris sancta is the only occurrence of the taxon in North America. Fairchild scientists are hoping to conserve these and other ferns and to increase their populations in the wild.
