Post #8785083

Customer came in asking if we had a fern called a "Fishtail" that when grown in a hanging basket, hung all the way to the floor.
Have looked through the pictures on DG, but can't find one that fits that description. I may have overlooked something though, so wanted to ask if anyone knew which fern this was.
She had wanted to buy one, because a relative had had one, who has passed away.
Thank you!

I have this fern, but most of mine are grown in the ground

Planted in hanging baskets, they will drape. I do have a couple of hanging baskets with this fern in it & they are beautiful!!!

Know it's been a while since you posted, but will be willing to work a trade with you if you are still interested.

Think I have a picture posted on the web page, here on Dave's, under 'Fishtail Fern'.
