Nephrolepis exaltata spore?

I'm a huge fan of hanging plants. That's why I really love Nephrolepis pendula...

My friend gave me two divisions from her greenhouse plant...both of which I killed. Not sure which is the biggest limiting factor for it outdoors here in Southern California...the temperature or the dryness.

So this time I decided to just collect spore. I'd like to try and cross it with Nephrolepis exaltata to see if I can't get a more tolerant plant with really long fronds. The problem is that I don't have N. exaltata.

Does anybody have any N. exaltata spore that they'd be willing to share? I'd certainly be happy to share a division of any progeny that inherited the best traits from both parents.
