I cant figure out this fern either. Here are some detailed pics. It started out as a small fern but the rhizome seems to have built up over 10 years or more to be a soft 10″ tall mound of soft scales? At first I cold not find any sori but it seems they are brown and round. One picture looks like it has two types of fronds. It is very scaly and has small bulblet on some of the fertile fronds?? It is a very dainty and pretty fern and hope someone can help me identify it or at least narrow it down. Not sure where I got it. Thanks again in advance for any help! Rob
About The Author
I love ferns and have a fern garden at my house. It was neglected during our 10 year drought but trying to get it happy again. I am trying to re-indentify some of the ferns I have. I lost a few rare and valuable ones but may want to add some more to fill it in. Some are native and some bought from Los Angeles Fern Society or local nurseries over the years. I am the drummer in a heavy metal band and also love Ferrari!

#FernFriday 🌿 According to an article published on http://whitehousehistory.org, a #fern house was implemented by James Buchanan into the White House #conservatory from 1857-1902! Here are some of our #specimens from Washington D.C. collected during that time period.
