Adiantum caudatum is an evergreen, perennial fern producing fronds up to 60cm tall from a shortly-creeping rhizome. It is also known for its antimicrobial activity. The fronds are arching to semi-prostrate, forming roots at their apex from which a new plant develops.
Juice of the fresh plant is applied to Abscesses and Wounds for quick healing. The fronds are said to be antiasthmatic, antispasmodic. They are used in the treatment of diabetes, coughs, fevers, and migraine. The fronds are used externally to treat skin diseases. The leaves are used in diabetes and as a cure for coughs and fevers.
