Strange Hart’s Tongue Fern Part 2

If you read my previous post, you might remember that I found a strange (and maybe even attractive!) cultivar of Asplenium scolopendrium growing around a tomb/grave in the church yard of All Saints Church in Botley, Hampshire, in October 2016.
I collected some spores of this plant and have eventually managed to raise about 10 small plants. At the moment they do not look too much like the parent. They bifurcate and they also have this sublineate thickening but they seem wider like more normal A. scolopendrium. Perhaps they will develop more like the parent as they mature
I noticed that there were several cultivars that grow around the grave, in combination with “normal” plants. There seem to be a variation in the cultivars, some are more extreme than the others

If you are interested in A. scolopendrium monsters, please email me and I can send you a plant
