You mean those thread-like things growing out of the soil? Those are runners setting out to find suitable places to establish new plants. I have ferns that do that too. It can be a nuisance in the garden.

If you mean those 'curls' on the ends of the fronds, that's the normal way for young fronds to unfurl. It's called a crozier, after that staff-like thing bishops carry around. That's one of the defining things with most ferns.

Thank you. Yes the base and runners look kind of yellow but I looked around and I guess it's normal? I ran into the curls topic too I'm so silly I never noticed them before.
