Pteridophyta

Introduction
They are very old fashioned, hate changes. Everything should stay the same for ever as far as they are concerned. But they do not have the power to enforce this on to their surroundings. The only thing they can do is retire into their own space and keep things the way they are. They prefer to retire in remote areas where things are as they have been for ages and they hope things will stay that way for ages longer.
They want to stay small and do not want to grow and become an adult with all their responsibilities.
