Annual grass fires are common in its natural habitats. The species is extremely fire tolerant, and the usually early spring fires initiate a profusion of new leaf growth in the plants, thus the common name, Fire Fern. Fertile plants are frequently seen with reproductive structure only, and no leaves. The leaves are deciduous in the dry season, though persistent if grown in moister situations.
