RE: Fern identification

Reggie is right, of course.  The plant almost certainly is Microsorum

It can be grown from spores.  It has been very slow-growing for me.  As

tree ferns, but different.

It seems to grow well in regular potting media (peat, perlite) with the
addition of a little orchid bark, fine aliflor, or some other material to
enhance drainage.
