    Hi guys,

    I got this epiphyte fern when I go to mountain in West Java, Indonesia (elevation approx 1,200 mtrs), Trully I don't know what fern is this. Can anybody ID what I've got?


    Really appreciate and thanks in advanced :)

    Asplenium nidus is a birds nest type fern with new leaves coming out of the middle, this looks more like a microsorum perhaps?

    @Daniel Mosquin
    thanks for your fastest reply. But I think A.Nidus as @edleigh7's info is right. Pic attached.

    @edleigh7
    Microsorum ... you mean Java Fern? :-/

    Still curious of this species

    @ainun, your posting is a bit ambiguous. The four photos in posting #4, what are you saying they are? Do you mean that they are A. nidus, and look different from your first posting? Or are they more photos of the same plant? It's not clear why you told Daniel, who proposed A. nidus, that you thought edleigh7's info is right.

    Anyway, it seems everyone thinks A. nidus now. [Edited]I posted that before I saw tara123's posting.
