ID of older dwarf nephrolepis ?

jebfarmOctober 22, 2013

Hello all -

I have had this fern since the early 80's, it was a plant of my grandmother's that I have propagated and kept alive and going because it is such a nice little Boston Fern. Would anyone know what variety or cultivar this is? It never grows much taller than 8" or so, it hasn't reverted or changed at all through the years so it is stable. Normally it is happy in a 4" pot, but some older plants that are growing strongly can fill a 6" pot easily.
I have never known this fern's name - any ideas? Thanks!

To answer my own question after doing a little internet research - the fern looks like and behaves like 'Fluffy Ruffles'
