Microsorum pteropus 'Windeløv' was the very first plant to be patented. During an inspection in 1992 of 10,000 Microsorum pteropus plants, Holger Windeløv (founder of Tropica) discovered two plants that were unique from the rest! The tip of a leaf divided, and this division had two tips dividing again. Through a long propagation and selective process they succeeded in re-creating this species.
On the occasion of Tropica's 25th anniversary this new plant was named Microsorum pteropus 'Windeløv' after the founder of Tropica. Both it's name and patent has been of great value to Tropica, and to the quiet enjoyment of Holger!
