Found in a tropical rainforest. Multiple pinnated, no visible spores.
I found this fern sample in the woods behind my house. Each of the stems were about two feet long and bright green in color.
Approximately 1 foot long from the base of the stem to the tip of the frond.
Growing out of a tree stump.
Tips of the fern changing from green to a red/brown.
Many Pteridium aquilinum (Bracken Ferns) were growing in sunny and shady spots, mostly along the gravel road down from Mt. Walker.
Pteridium aquilinum (bracken, brake or common bracken), also known as "eagle fern," is a species of fern occurring in temperate and subtropical regions in both hemispheres. The extreme lightness of its spores has led to its global distribution.
