I'm looking for rare/unusual fern suggestions that fit the following ridiculously specific requirements :D
Note: NOT for a pdf viv. Is for partially open-top paludarium

  • Can grow in temps upper 60's to low 70's
  • Has the "typical" pinnate fern frond look (NOT oval, round, or straplike)
  • Epiphytic / can be grown in sphagnum attached to background
  • Max frond length/size: 2-3 inches
  • Moderate growth rate (not a lot of space in tank so don't want rampant beast :) )

As stated, I'm not interested in oval/round/strap leaves, not interested in Microgramma, Lemmaphyllum, etc (Already have them, plus the Microgramma grows like crap at the cooler temps I am providing). As silly as it sounds, I want a "fern looking" fern :p

I know this is pretty specific, but I know there must be some ferns out there which fit these criteria (despite the fact that they are probably super hard to find).

Sources would also be appreciated, including dendroboard members willing to sell from their collection
