Asplenium ceterach


Ceterach officinarum is a perennial plant of fern species, that grows by 10 to 20 cm. The plant is characterised by a short rhizome that gives rise to several, lanceshaped, green leaves formed in the winter.

The ripening of the seeds takes place between April and October and the harvesting all year round but mainly, between March and June. Unlike many others, this fern likes growing in full sun, and requires little, if any, humidity.
