Vessel Fern, Angiopteris sp.

Angiopteris is native to the tropics, from the South Pacific to Madagascar.  In some areas where it was introduced, it is an invasive weed.  But at the McMillan Greenhouse, it minds its manners.   I altered this photo with the HDR feature on Picnik.  You can have hours of fun on Picnik.  (They do not pay me or give me free stuff, I just like them.)
