We purhased some old railroad ties a few years ago. After a year or so, these guys popped out of the wood. They were quite small in the beginning, but now they're enormous! I love them! If anyone can ID them for me, I'd be grateful. Thanks...

Finding mine was a happy accident. I have it in a hanging pot now.
The fronds are enormous and interesting to look at.
I'm not usually fond of ferns, but this one really impressed me.
