– Rhizome System:


Rhizome Rope Like Roots

 

Angiopteris evecta ferns with its complex rhizome root systems with its large size globular roots, which can grow approximate about the circumference of the base of the fern.
The Angiopteris evecta ferns are prone to feral animals, especially ones the that burrows down and under the rhizome roots to the centre heart of the fern to eat out the starchy flesh.

If the rhizome root systems has been disturb by feral animals, in turn the ferns becomes unstable, which it can’t sustain its vascular flexibility in their fronds the ferns in the end will collapse and die.
Its will becomes a threat to the population of the Angiopteris evecta ferns, where some areas are in decline and endangered.
