    My friend gave me a little fern that looks a little like a christmas fern. However, it's leaves (although they grow on the stem just like the christmas fern) have jagged edges.

    I've looked on many sites for a picture and couldn't find any like it. I know I've seen ferns like this before but I just don't remember it was soooo many years ago!

    Any care info would be nice too.

    Thank You for all info

    If you should take a picture of your plant that would be more helpful.

    As much as I would like to I don't have the equipment needed to take and upload pictures of my plants onto the internet.
    I've recently discovered, though, that my fern is a Maidenhair Fern Adiantum pedatum

    This is a picture off of the internet that is identical to my fern...

    Hi Woodsprite - these are the conditions of use for that photograph. I'm going to assume you didn't get permission from J.S. Peterson, so I've removed the image. Instead, here's a link to the page on the USDA site:

    Adiantum pedatum

    Sorry Daniel, I'll remember that in the future.
