Name the ferns, ....pls :)

clusty1August 19, 2014

Hello,

Reposting, as I did not get a response on the fern forum. Better luck here maybe:

I got 2 new big box store ferns and as usual, they are labeled as "assorted ferns".

Any idea how they might be called ?
One is green with a silvery layer, and second looks like a regular fern and has some red-ish leafs.

Maybe a picture would help with ID.

The one on the left looks like Phlebodium pseudoaureum. common name hardy blue fern.

The one on the right looks like a polystichum, maybe tsus-simense, Korean rock fern. I remember that they are a little messy when the spores ripened. What do the undersides of the leaves looks like? I'm not a fern expert, so I certainly could be off on this one.

Cercis141,

The undersides have no particularity. No spores present or anything, but then again the plant is fairly small

I found a reference that describes p. tsus-simensis upclose and personal if you want to investigate further. I know it's commonly sold as an indoor plant, very easy to grow because it tolerates low temps and a drier atmosphere than some other ferns grown indoors. I had purchased it for a cold, north facing window for a client. It did great but the client didn't care for it because the spores dropped on her windowsill :/

Here is a link that might be useful: p. tsus-simensis

The one on the right side is Pteris tricolor.

Yes it does! Glad you got the right answer (and I learned a new plant).
