Interestingly, this plant has a stout erect rhizome (stem) that bears a rosette of simple leaves (fronds) to form a structure that resembles a ?nest?.This unique fern grows in the form of a deep rosette of large, shiny, spear-shaped fronds. New fronds unfurl from the centre of the plant. The fronds are light green, often crinkled, with a black midrib, and exhibit circinate vernation. Spores develop in sori on the underside of the fronds. From the range of ferns that can be grown indoors this plant has larger leaflets than most and gives that large full leaf foliage plant appearance.
