All ferns extremely powerful protection. Grow in shady areas of the garden
and in the house. Always include in vases of flowers. Throw fern on hot
coals to send up an aura of protection. Also burn out-of-doors to bring
rain. The unexpended fronds of the male fern are dried over a Midsummer
fire and kept for protection. These "lucky hands" are rare nowadays.
