Fern ID please (pics)

I bought this plant from a garden center yesterday without knowing a thing about it other than it's some type of fern. The sticker reads: casave fern asst. I've tried all morning looking it up, but can't seem to figure out which species it is. Any ideas? Does it appear to be healthy?

Okay, so I think I may have finally figured it out - it's a Microsorum diversifolium, or Kangaroo Paw Fern. Is this correct?

You got it Chickadee. BTW I've found it a bit more hardy than 9a; perhaps 8a.
