Whisk Fern


Psilotum nudum is nearly cosmopolitan, growing in tropical and warm-temperate areas worldwide.  
In the U.S. it is native to the southeast, from Florida to the Carolinas, along the coastal plain.

This species may be terrestrial or epiphytic.  In South Florida, it is a common weed in nursery plants.
