Drymoglossum piloselloides is a fern with small round fleshy glossy fronds (about 1 cm) without stalks. The fronds bearing spores (fertile leaves) are long and narrow (3-15 cm long) and held on a stalk. Sometimes the tips are branching. The thin stems are covered by scales and there are minute star-shaped hairs on the underside of the frond. All these help to conserve water.
Please use for sowing of fern spores Jiffy 7 Peat Pellets, soak them in water and put in a plastic pot.
Sow the fern spores on the peat pellets.
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.
Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 77 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-72 F. The resulting micro-climate provides ideal conditions for germination.
Soon you will see a fine green layer on the surface. From the prothallia the small fern plants will develop with high humidity.
