Hello. I have a small fern that I wanted an ID on. I think it is some kind of a Brake fern but I'm not sure which. Here is a pic:

RE: Fern Houseplant ID pic included

Unless my eyes are fooling me, it almost looks like you have two different ferns in that pot. The one closest to the edge looks like Cretan Brake 'Rowerii' (or some other cultivar of Pteris cretica). Just taking a stab at the one further in, 'Rivertoniana' (also Pteris Cretica). Hope this helps lead you in the right direction even if I am not right on the IDs!
