This is the image of India’s first cryptogamic garden. Cryptogamae means “hidden reproduction” referring to the fact that no seed, no flowers are produced. Thus, cryptogams represent the non-seed-bearing plant. Algae, bryophytes (moss, liverworts), lichens, ferns and fungi are the best-known groups of cryptogams. The garden housing nearly 50 species of lichens, ferns and fungi was inaugurated at Deoban in Chakrata (Uttarakhand). Low pollution levels and moist conditions at Deoban are conducive for the growth of these species.
