rabbit foot fern

Posted by columbusgardener 6 (My Page) on

I just moved into a new home and my next door neighbor saw my houseplants and has "bestowed" a rather sickly looking rabbits foot to me to rescue from her black thumb. I have never had a fern ( I thought they were hard to take care of ) can anyone tell me what I should do - it looks over grown. There are fronds coming off the "feet". Can I divide it and repot with out much damage to it? Do I use regular potting soil? I am at a loss

thank you
