Additional Landscape Use Information
Neke is one of the easiest of all native ferns to grow and is even regarded as passively invasive, especially in confined areas. 
This is one of the few native Hawaiian ferns that will grow in full sun as long as it has wet feet--that is, with constantly wet or soggy soil conditions. Neke needs space to sprawl and is therefore suitable for large water features or restoration projects. [Kay Lynch, Lāʻau Hawaiʻi]
The fibrous roots make neke an excellent plant for natural erosion prevention in wet areas such as along a fresh water bank. [David Eickhoff, Native Plants Hawaiʻi]
Plant in areas that for whatever reason stay wet, like the opening of a downspout. [Rick Barboza, Hui Kū Maoli Ola]
Neke can be used a container plant in part to full sun with regular watering.

Special Features and Information
Neke (Cyclosorus interruptus) belongs to the Marsh Fern family or Thelypteridaceae.
The generic name Cyclosorus refers to the round sori (Greek kyklos, circle + soros, heap) or spores located under the fronds.
The specific name interruptus, not continued or interrupted. The meaning applied to this species is obscure.
There has been some question as to whether neke is actually indigenous or has been inadvertently introduced by early Polynesians since it is common in kalo loʻi on some islands. The early Hawaiians did pack mud around kalo (taro) corms for canoe transport and may have included mud with neke spores as well. [1,2] Even so, it is currently recognized as being an indigenous fern.
Waineke, near Kōkeʻe on Kauaʻi, was named for this fern. [Kay Lynch, Lāʻau Hawaiʻi]

The stiff fronds were used in lei making.
