Drynaria Fortunei is a species of basket fern of the family Polypodiaceae. It is an epiphytic
(growing on trees) or epipetric (growing on rocks) plant. Like other species of Drynaria, they
possess two frond types a fertile foliage frond and a sterile nest frond. Sterile nest frond
are rounded shallowly-lobed reddish-brown fronds overlapping each other. They bear no sori
and form a 'basket' characteristic of the genus. The fertile fronds are larger and deeply lobed.
They bear 1 to 3 sori arranged on both sides of the central rib.
