    Nice 'frills' on those leaves NTG. Looks more like an elkhorn than a birds nest at this stage. I have seen some varietal types of birds nest ferns which are a little bit frilly, eg "Cobra".

    Cheers

    Yeah, I would not have thought that to be a birds nest fern...
    Like Tim said, it looks more like an elkhorn (i.e Polypodium)...Will be interesting to see as it grows if it changes appearance.

    Like the mount with the moss a lot! Very natural.

    I like the mount with the moss too. Looks almost bonsai. Great pic!
