Overall information :
Golden Chicken fern, wooly fern, Golden Hair Dog Fern, also called Scythian lamb .The fern's woolly rhizome was thought to be the inspiration for the mythical "Vegetable Lamb of Tartary. This fern is being followed for ages with strange stories. And most famous one is that is grows sheep as fruits ! people saw animals in the hairy fronds.
Cibotium is a tropical tree fern from South China to Indonesia. It has a slow growing rhizome witch is covered with golden brown hairs. Trunk can reach about 1,5m high and fronds can grow to 3m long.
But the plant has also many medicinal purposes. This is probably the major cause of the decline of this beautiful fern in the wild.
Cibotium is possible to export from Thailand with Phytosanitary certificate, because it is locally grown here.
