Ferns/Unusual House Plant


MrsHGW wrote at 2016-02-17 22:27:20
I have forgotten who gave me my fern but it has very large, broad, more than a foot long "leaves" fern shaped and those beautiful hairy legs.  I was hoping to find its name as I am searching without success on the internet. I think your posting is over 6 years old but I would be happy to share my plants spores if that person still wishes it. It does not have the fine leaves of the Rabbit's foot fern, so mine might not be what she remembers. Thank you for your information and care.  My plant thanks you too.

I can answer all types of questions regarding ferns: their physiology, life cycle, taxonomy, culture (for both the professional and hobbyist), home and garden application and care, site suitability, and more. I can also answer questions in the fields of greenhouse production, foliage plants, and houseplant care, along with questions in the general field of ornamental horticulture. I may be able to identify fern and foliage plants by photo, but I am unlikely to be able to do it by description (though I will never turn down a challenge). I am not an expert in crop, field, and agronomic production. I am not an expert on annuals, perennials, tree & shrub crops.


I am a horticulturist with a formal education and twelve years experience in commercial fern and tropical foliage production. I also served as Adjunct Professor of Horticulture at Florida Southern College.

Florida's Nursery Growers and Landscape Association: current member and Action Chapter Board Member 2006-2008.

I have a BSc in Environmental Horticulture / Business from Florida Southern College, specializing in Greenhouse Management and Production.
