What's under the leave?

Hi,

Notice these clusters of dark color, egg-like things under my java fern leaves. Can any one help identify what they are?

Thanks in advance.

Those are spores from the fern itself - nothing wrong with your plant! Don't be surprised if little baby plantlets start growing from them - especially from any dead leaves (you my not want to pull out dead java fern leaves for just this reason!)

Everyone seems normal... until you get to know them.

My fern has had many planlets, but since they always grow from the tip of the leaves, I never realize the spores are present over the length of the entire leave.

Thanks.
