The Fancy Frill Fern

One favourite fern plant we have in our home is the Fancy frill fern. We have it growing in pots and outside on a rock, I’ve also seen this fern planted as a hedge in some yards. Fishtail fernThe Fancy frill fern (Nephrolepis falcata) is also known as fishtail fern and forked sword fern; it grows well in full sunlight.

The Fancy frill fern is edible and it leaves can be cooked as a vegetable. It is also a medicinal plant where its leaves are used to treat blisters, cuts & wounds, boils, abscesses, and sores.
