Neutral Cretaceous On Mar 12, 2007, Cretaceous from El Sobrante, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

Purchased from Home Depot (where it was tagged as a "Bronze Venus Fern"). This maidenhair fern has very distinctive fronds which have a bud at the end with a whip-like tip. Also sometimes sold as the "Walking Maidenhair Fern". This fern is native to Vietnam.
