Re:Microsorium brassii


I spent a week in various parts of the Kikori River in PNG and never saw M.
brassii growing emerse or with any other leaf form (while I saw acres of M.
pteropus, mostly emerse and mostly with divides foliage). I am unaware of
anyone reporting any foliage variants in aquaria.

However how long was M pteropus in cultivation before the current variants
became fixed?
