Polypodium decumanum

  • Subject: [ferns] Polypodium decumanum

I have a fern that was brought from Brazil to Canada in a woman's purse. Started from a small piece it is now a giant in my kitchen. It has been tentatively identified as Polypodium decumanum. How can I be certain that this is correct? I gather that this is the Samambaia of the Amazon. This past spring, while in Cuba, I noticed a very similar fern growing on a friend's porch.
  My guess is that the ID was correct. Any thoughts on this?
