Ferns are some of the oldest plants found in nature: Many are prehistoric, dating as far back as 360 million years ago, predating the evolution of seeds.
They produce with spores, visibly located on the underside of their leaves. When ripe, the spores take to the wind and are dispersed throughout the world in search of a new home. The method for growing ferns from spores on the tevaplanter is to wait for the fern spores to be ripe and then rub or sprinkle them onto the moist tevaplanter surface. It's important to keep the surface moist throughout the entire process. It may take months and even years for spores to grow into a mature fern on the tevaplanter.
HOW IT WORKS
Preparation: Gather your tevaplanter, a fern leaf with ripe spores or paper with collected fern spores, and a water sprayer.
Moistening the Surface: Use the water sprayer to wet the surface of the tevaplanter thoroughly, ensuring it's damp enough for spores to adhere.
Transferring Spores from Fern: Take the fern leaf and gently rub the underside, where the spores are located, against the moist surface of the tevaplanter to transfer the spores.
Dispensing Spores from Paper: If you have spores on paper, evenly sprinkle them onto the wet surface of the tevaplanter, allowing them to stick to the moisture.
Continuous Moisture: Fill the tevaplanter with water and make sure the tevaplanter stays wet and watered and away from direct sunlight.
Spore Germination: Over time, observe the emergence of tiny fern prothalli, the heart-shaped young fern growth, which indicates successful spore propagation.
Fern Maturation: As the ferns mature, they will develop into full fronds, covering the tevaplanter with lush greenery. Continue to provide consistent moisture and care to ensure healthy growth.
