Might be a Button Fern (Pellaea rotundifolia)

RE: Need help with fern ID

It reminds me of Nephrolepis cordifolia.
I've got Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Lemon Button'.
This one seems to be taller, with forked tips and double pinnae.
It might be Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Duffii'.

RE: Need help with fern ID

Hi to all

I would have said nephrolepsis cordafolia duffii.

seeing how the fronds emerge at soil level would give a better idea.


RE: Need help with fern ID

I don't think so...the ends are split in two, forked. From the pics I've seen of "duffii", they're not like that.
