Help reproducing rabbit's foot or Kangaroo paw ferns

Oviedo, FL(Zone 9b)

Hi, folks! Got all kinds of books on outdoor ferns but not much on propagation of the "footed" ferns or houseplant types.
I have a handsome Davallia feejeensis, named Dave (not the real Dave!), and a Kangaroo Paw fern, Microsorium.
Do any of you have experience propagating these? I once found a rooted cutting of one of Dave's feet but it had broken off into the garden outdoors and had rooted by itself before I discovered it. Is this easier to do outdoors or indoors, as both ferns are in, here in MA, for the winter? I would appreciate any help you could give.

For Davallia feejeensis, just break off a section of rhizome, and plant it. Very easy!
