It looks like I'll be the spore distributor. Please contact me off line if you're interested in Robert's generous offer of free Chinese spores.

By the way, All the ferns on my Fernpics website are from Robert's earlier spore distribution. My count of 16 did not include volunteers and species that have died since the picture was taken (photo date appears when hovering cursor over picture).

Hi Brian-- WOW! On that web page, there were more than 16 different ferns
presented, so some of those were from the spores I collected and some were
from other sources, right? GREAT WORK with those! I'm really pleased to see
that their presence here in the U.S. has continued....I hope some others who
grew the spores were as equally successful! I'd be very pleased to send
these new ones to you as the distributor---THANKS! And I have 3 more
species to add to the list.....

Unknown fern, wild--growing in the cracks between the bricks of a stone wall
along the sides of a small man-made pond at the home of the poet, Du Fu, in
Chengdu, Sichuan
Pyrrosia sp., wild--I hope this leaf has viable spores on it.....couldn't
even be sure by looking at it that what I was seeing was spores, though I
think they were; this was from a plant growing on rocks on West Mtn. (West
Hills), Yunnan (it looks like a plant in a photo in one of my reference
books....that one was identified as P. davidii)
Microsorum lucidum???--I think that's what this is, thanks to one or two
Fernet members previously looking at photos I e-mailed them; from a plant I
have growing which was purchased in the spring of 2002 at an outdoor plant
market in Kunming, Yunnan

So Brian, can you e-mail me your mailing address? You can do it offline,
if you want, to plantboy@earthlink.net Thanks again. Take care.

I'd be glad to distribute the spores. By the way, I had pretty good luck
raising the spores you shared a few years ago. Sixteen of the 23 species
are still going strong; the rest either never germinated or were too
difficult to grow without a greenhouse. See pictures at

Thank you so much for collecting an offering the spores!
