Description

This fern grows in dams, ponds and streams that are seasonally dry, so tit is deciduous. When the rains arrive, the spores germinate or the dormant rhizomes produce fronds with the characteristic clover – like leaflets. The leaves grow up and float on the surface of the water. As the rains decrease and the water levels drop the soil hardens and the plant becomes dormant again.
