Climbing Fern- Lygodiaceae?: Photo taken in Devarayanadurga reserve forest, 60km from Bangalore.
a very strange sighting for me.. seeing climbing fern for the first time! notice the sori along the leaf margin..
id help requested
This looks like Lygodium flexosum. Will send my photographs of this later.
Lygodium flexosum
These are some of mine.
Yes Ligodium flexosum.
A very good green medicine for treating burned skin.


... introduced me to a plant, Lygodium, in Shibpur Botanical Garden (BSI, Howrah). Yesterday i found a similar looking fern under a bamboo thicket. Darkness prevented me get good quality pics.
Species : Lygodium japonicum (Thunb.) Sw. ?
similar species : Lygodium flexuosum (L.) Sw.
H & H : trailer under shady bamboo thicket
Date : 24/10/12, 9.25 a.m.
Place : Hooghly
sites :

Lygodium palmatum in N. America - http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=40822&flora_id=1
To me all these are same and most likely Lygodium flexuosum.
It is lygodium flexuosum
both L. japonicum and L. flexuosum grow at the Subash Chandra Boase Botanical Garden - I mean the I.B.G., Calcutta. But your photos are flexuosum, I reckon.
The plant is Lygodium flexuosum. But, the name of the garden refered to by ... is perhaps not Subhas Chandra Bose Garden, it is Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden (Sir, it is a mix up between names of two famous luminaries of India- both bengalee).
In our part (Barak Valley) three species of lygodium is found. In addition to the two species mentioned by ... there is an unique species Lygodium polystachum which is having a very restricted distribution. Oh! it is such a beautiful fern!
Silly me! I thought the two Boses were both the same person all these years! I had just thought he was a man of exceedingly varied talents and interests! I stand corrected - and thanks! It was easier just to call it the Indian Botanic Garden - maybe in 10 years it will become Mamata's garden! Same renaming goes on in modern Britain too sometimes - just as long as we never get any "Blair Streets", I hope!! 
Yes, L. polystachyum occurs in Manipur, too - though rare there, I didn't know it got into Assam, perhaps near to Manipur side? It is indeed a remarkable species with its deeply lobed "pinnules" - I have seen it in the field only in Thailand and Myanmar. Can one cultivate it? - it would look splendid in any garden. 
Presumably the two further species in Assam (and West Bengal plains) are L. microphyllum, common in the wet areas, with small, shorter, cordate-based segments, and L. salicifolium - the latter rather near flexuosum, but without the long basal lobes in most pinnae, and a having consistently swollen junctions at the segment bases where the ultimate segments absciss and fall off in old fronds, leaving only the branched leaflet-stalks. L. salicifolium is often overlooked, but is a perfectly distinct species. 
L. altum is another species in the area, with toothed and long segments, but I find it hard to separate from L. longifolium - if, indeed it is a separate species. Dixit & Panigrahi's account of the genus was generally pretty good, though they mistakenly reported L. mearnsii - then Holttum's account for Flora Malesiana is very helpful.

Saw this fern climbing on another tree in Pali, Maharashtra on 23/11/12. Except these two pictures, I've no more details to add.
I was told its some Climbing Fern.
It might be Lygodium japonicum
On searching the net, the leaves look similar.
Lygodium flexuosum it is.
Lygodium flexuosum (L.)Sw (maidenhair creeper)
Lygodium flexuosum.

Requesting to please confirm the ID of this climber with peculiar leaves (Lygodium flexuossum) captured at SGNP, Mumbai in September 2013.
Affirmative. This is Lygodium flesuossum. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this.
Lygodium flexuosum to be precise. Please check this link :

This vine was seen by the roadside near Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.
I guess this is Lygodium flexuosum.

Lygodium flexuosum.

Please check Lygodium flexuosum

Thank you. ...!!
Searched on web and got interesting information on India Biodiversity Portal:
'Tribal say if we cross or touch this climber we forget the route in forest so called 'Bhoolan bel''

Can you post the original image for checking more details ?

Lygodium flexuosum - very common, often used to twist into ropes in country houses - to carry fodder bundles. There must be a lot of lost tribals wondering around looking for the way home over there!
