help ID fern

fireflyfarm(8b)March 8, 2013

Can anyone help ID this fern. Its barely surviving and if I knew the name I.could put it in the appropriate potting media and use the correct watering. Its trying to grow but turning brown as soon as the leaves seem to harden off. Its in low med light in an epiphytic mix with moderate water. Its very unhappy.

Well, I guess it could be Drynaria rigidula 'Whitei', an unusual fern. Itôd be necessary to see the whole plant.
