September
Over the entire history of the earth, there were ferns in the rainforest.  Especially the way they propagate shows how much they differ from other higher growing plants: In dry weather, ferns clench their spores rip the capsule on the underside of leaves, and hurl them out. A Protonema, in which male and female organs are formed and the sperm fertilizes the eggs of the female which forms the actual fern.
