Look at how striking the iridescence of this beautiful Microsorum thailandicum is! Sadly its beauty may inevitably be its downfall. Endemic to limestone rock crevices in the Chumphon Province of Thailand, over-harvesting for the horticultural trade may be driving this plant to extinction. More work needs to be done to assess the abundance of this species in the wild. Be wary of places selling such species!
