    Default from my growing area, two noid ferns

    I am barred from the fern area. What a shame. I need some help in identifying my new plants.

    Anyone has any idea on what the bottom two plants are?

    Top one of the two looks similar to elkhorn (Polypodium grandiceps), but not quite. I would guess it's a polypodium...check google images for a match.
    Bottom of the two looks like the birdsnest (Asplenium nidus) but a lot more ruffled than I'm used to seeing...maybe it's a variation of this species?
    Hope this steers you in the right direction?

    Hi Gerald,

    What lush growing area you have there.. and those two ferns looks very healthy...

    I agree with Matt, they are both Aspleniums nidus... and they would be cultivars of it. For instance the one that has the leaves which divide into three ends (oh such scientific terms ) could be Asplenium nidus 'Cobra'

    As for posting in any of the member's clubs, you will have to join them first... here's a thread on how to join.

    I want that bird's nest fern, you know, the one that 'divides into three ends'. That's just the right level of scientific explanation for me. I see, I like, I buy! Who needs names??!! But really lovely, and so happy! Guess I'll have to see if they'll grow around here.
