Rating for this plant:
My favorite small fern that does not out-grow its space. It grows under 1 foot with fronds that are less than an inch wide and 10" long with single row of small round leaves. Takes low humidity and hotter temperatures than some ferns.

An easy small fern inside if planted in shallow planters. Self propagates with runners (rhizomes) and spores.

Can be invasive in warm climate areas preventing regeneration of native flora
