Microsorum is a genus of ferns in the family Polypodiaceae, subfamily Microsoroideae, according to the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group classification of 2016 (PPG I). The species are tropical. Like most ferns, they grow from rhizomes, rather than roots. The genus name is often misspelled "Microsorium" or "Microsoreum". It includes some species that are lithophytic rheophytes. The Hawaiian Laua’e fern, is a tropical that is widely used as an ornamental ground cover especially in Hawaii where it has naturalized. The glossy, deeply lobed, ovate 2 foot fronds spring forth from a thick creeping rhizome and become progressively darker in deepening shade. It is easily established in moist but well-draining soil and will fill in disturbed areas in Zones 9-12. Elsewhere it is a candidate as a robust indoor or conservatory basket plant.
