Stag horn fern

Kidney fern is a filmy fern species native to New Zealand. It commonly grows on the forest floor of open native bush but will grow on the trunks of trees in damp conditions. It has a distinctive kidney shape frond which stands about 5-10 cm tall. They shrivel when they dry out, but open up again when moisture returns

A much improved (if that is possible) selection of the species. Relatively easy as a houseplant given high humidity.
