Drynaria rigidula is a robust, epiphytic fern with a long, creeping rhizome, growing up to 1.5 metres tall. It produces two types of annual frond - short, sterile ones up to 35cm tall that remain on the plant for several years and have a main purpose of trapping organic material to provide nutrient for the plant, and taller fertile shoots that produce spores. What make it very gorgeous is long weeping fronds each having deeply erect leaflet in bright green.
This specie is a seasonal plant has dormancy period (leafless) during December-March and need less water. This fern likes to be grown in filtered light and likes good drainage.
