Little break for a special vascular plant. First time seeing it in the East Bay, and it was doing just fine. Big, beautiful blooming plants.
Grows in bark nodules, almost exclusively on bay, bright green and shiny, leaves emerge at 45 deg able
Bigger than P. bolanderi, prefers rock.
Damp places, stream banks, not a liverwort (as I first surmised), has costa, finely serrated leaf tips.
Leaves corkscrew when dry, soil banks .
Leaves in rosette, large pendulous capsules.
Pendant pear like capsules, glaucous leaves, pink stems.
Leaf litter, stream banks
Likes trees, 4 chambered sporophyte.
Near small stream, dark red capsules
Forms networks, curled and twisted leaves when dry
Curves up when dry
Mouse tails, grows on rocks, bark
Grows on soil
Looks a lot like Dendroalsia to me.
