Walking Fern - Camptosorus rhizophyllus


This species, commonly called "Walking Fern", is an interesting little plant. The common name comes from the fact that the leaves sprout new plants at their apices. After a few generations, the plant appears as if it is walking across it's substrate. The simple leaves are often long-tapering to the tips and if a leaf tip falls on a moist surface, it can generate roots and a new plant, thereby allowing the ferns to "walk" over the surface of the moss-covered rocks.
