  1. climbing maidenhair fern

    A climbing maidenhair fern is a type of vining plant, scientifically known as Lygodium microphyllum. Native to tropical and subtropical regions, this fern is unique in its ability to climb and wind itself around other structures for support, often reaching substantial heights. It is distinguished by its small, delicate, and lacy fronds, which appear bright green in color. Although beautiful and ornamental, it is considered an invasive species in some regions like in Florida, USA due to its rapid and dense growth which can out-compete native vegetation.
