Resurrection fern is growing on the bottom of our fishtail palm, I found it a week ago, and took the photo and waited for it to rain. The fern dies 2 or 3 days after it rains and comes back to life the next time it rains. I tried pouring rain water from the barrel on it, and it did nothing.
We had 1/2 inch of rain and it resurrected to it's normal self.
To see how it grows in the wild on Oak trees go to my past post Resurrection Ferns at Emerson Point.
Rain brings beauty, and life, but is also brings FROGS that sound like many screen doors opening and closing. And they only SING at night.
Frogs do the same thing the fern does, they dig a hole, hibernate and wait for the rain, and they come out and sing and make babies.
