Pyrrosia lingua 'Kaeru Tei' is a Japanese selection of the Asian tongue fern. With a name like 'Kaeru Tei', which means to "change appearance", you can imagine that each leaf will be different. The 6" long, black-green, tongue-shaped leaves are edged with irregular-sized angular protruberances...Hello Siri...what's an angular protruberance? In short, it's a fern that only a mother could love. So, have you ever been called a mother?
