I originally got a cutting of the fern and it has travelled with me for about 20 years - have given lots of pieces to other people in the mean time - and it suddenly took off a few years ago after I transplanted it from a small pot to the hanging basket.

Glen -

Did any of the pieces of the fern grow?

Otherwise I can get some growing and send to you when it's a bit cooler?
