Comments: Unlike most ferns, the Rabbit’s Foot Fern is grown because of its creeping rhizome that has a peculiar appearance. Some think it is an adorable rabbits foot peaking over the edge of the pot while others see it as a creepy tarantula leg trying to escape. The fern fronds grow directly from this rhizome. Funnily enough, rabbits are one of the few animals who prefer not to eat the plant.
