A friend of mine was given a fern by a friend of hers. She planted it in the ground and it grew huge over the summer. She was told it would not survive outside during the winter. Since she wasn't going to bring it her house for the winter, she offered it to me. This is a small piece of the fern. Like one twentieth of the original plant.
I put it in a pot and brought it inside. I have no idea what type of fern it is, what kind of light it prefers, does it need to stay moist or let dry out, etc.
Here's a close up of the leaves.
