Holly Fern Woodsia
Ferns like living in moist areas like under the sequoia trees in California. Ferns can even grow in redwood tree bark. Ferns are very old. The leafy branch of a fern is called a frond. On the bottom of a frond you can see little growths. These are sporangia which contain spores that grow into a heart shaped plant called a prothallus. The spores are seeds and can grow into plants. The spores float in the air until they land on the ground and grow into a heart shaped plant called a prothallus.
