Hi everybody,

Thanks to all and especially to Tom Stuart to a full and lucid explanation of 
the Red Fern saga.

I had suspected something like this might be at the bottom of it all, but not 
to the degree revealed.

Yes, I know about red Blechnums, especially when growing in very nutrient-
poor sites, and I'll throw in the name of another genus for good measure -  
Doodia - which also frequently has ruddy fronds when new..

Many thanks.

I'll be interested to have the response from the source of the query that 
started this.
