Description: Lacking roots and leaves and having only a bare-bones vascular system, this ferny plant has travelled amazingly far distances around the world. Technically, it can't survive a deep freeze but has been known to survive well below freezing in a pot. Best in a greenhouse to let you know you're doing everything right.
