The softwood fern grew well in the sandy soil of the Rimwood, despite it being covered in slowly decomposing pine needles.
Moonfern was a type of fern found in the midwood area of the forest of Cormanthor. It was found in the groves of alders, hickories and bitternuts.
Parts of a fern were used in cooking, such as fern-frond soup and fiddlehead soup.
