Pyrrosia lingua 'Yabane Fu' is a selection of the epiphytic Japanese tongue fern with 7" long, thick, leathery evergreen leaves with randomly jagged edges and equally random streaks of green and yellow. All pyrrosia lingua forms are just as happy growing on a tree or rock as long as their foliage gets adequate moisture. We prefer our plants in containers of a compost rich mix. In the ground, the soil needs to be very organic, and well-drained, and in cold climates, the plants perform best on a slope.
