Hi all,

The folks at the garden center where I bought this couldn't tell me what type of fern this is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the crummy quality photo. It is a bit hairy towards the soil but is not footed.

Looks like rabbit's foot fern to me.

Thanks willow07. I thought I had a rabbits foot fern (different plant). It has fuzzy roots, or is that hare's foot fern? In any case the foliage of this new fern looks extremely similar to the one with fuzzy roots.

Maybe this plant is younger and hasn't developed the hairy roots yet? Where did you get it? It looks extremely healthy. I have yet to own a fern myself because they don't really appeal to me but I do appreciate a well maintained one.

ferns are really tough to identify lol. i call the big footed ones Bears footmedium, squirrels foot and the small rabbits foot If it has no feet it's probably none of the above ?? lol gary
