Hello Jolanda,
    It is probablye that the spores of the fern labeled "Alaska fern" are
that of some form of a Polsytichum setiferum 'Divisilobum'.  This bastard
label is applied inthe US especially the Pacific Northwest for this the
divided soft sheild fern.  Some forms are better than others depending on
the source.  The best forms are produced vegetatively from bulbils produced
along the rachis.  Spore grown plants will be aa mixed lot from very good to
reverting to the species.
