Dryopteris ramosa is one of the first Pakistani ferns in our trials, and one that we can find little or no information about. I guess the Taliban burned all the fern books since they described alternative sex in great detail. About all I can tell you about D. ramosa is that it grew wonderfully from spores. One website says that it can be used as an aphrodisiac or to cure constipation and gastric ulcers. Before you get to excited and take a bite, the same site says it flowers from December - March, which gives the site a low trust factor, so stick to FDA-approved over the counter medicines.
