Unyielding and small, this fern thrives in the cool, shadowy realms of the rainforest, typically finding its home in the elevated regions along the eastern slopes of the Andes. Despite its individual fronds standing apart, the low-growing, clustered rootstock creates the illusion of a miniature thicket.
This plant holds a revered place in the traditional wisdom of indigenous Amazonian ethnomedicine, a legacy passed down through the ages. Classified as a medicinal herb of the Amazon, it plays a crucial role in the healing traditions of native communities across Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Bolivia.
Take 1 cup of tea twice daily. This herb is recommended to be prepared the night before use.
Can be taken in two week intervals with Pasuchaca.
