    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.  

    Toxicity: Safe.
