I was in Seattle a couple of weeks ago and visited Swanson's Nursery with my friend Erin. We were looking for a small tree for her, but of course I'm always on the hunt for any plant that might catch my eye, so we wandered through all the departments. Tucked away in the fern section were these beauties...
Flying Dragon Tongue Fern is a new one for me, and I was rather quickly under its spell and preparing to purchase. The only question was; do I buy just one, or spurge on two?
Then I looked at the price...
Ha! There was nothing in the way it was displayed to say it was going to be THAT expensive. I walked on, and didn't buy even one, in case you were wondering.
I did find this listing for Pyrrosia lingua 'Hiryu' online, the plant looks the same and is only $25. Add in the shipping and it's $47.26. Looks like this is going to be a case of unfulfilled, ongoing, plant lust.
