Polypodiaceae

Polypodiaceae is the family of ferns. It is from the order of Polypodiales. Polypodiaceae includes about 65 genera and about 1,650 species. The members are widely distributed around the world. They are usually found in wet environments such as rainforests. The plants from this family usually share characteristics like spore-producing structures or sporangia or the banks of thick-walled cells or annulus. The stems could be erect or trailing. The petioles lack stipules. Many are epiphytes (growing on other plants rather than in soil). Polypodiaceae members usually have hair on their stems and leaves, they are rhizomatous and have similar growth habits.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
