This fern with the soft bluish fronds is Polypodium (Phlebodium) aureum is often called 'rabbit's foot fern' or a variety of other names.  It has thick, fuzzy brown rhizomes that creep across a basket, mount, or pot.  Fronds are up to 2 feet long at least when mature, but these are still young and compact.  Size of rhizome and fronds come with age. 

These make a really awesome display in a vanda basket or similar, because it gives their rhizomes plenty of space to creep along and over the sides.  They can also be grown mounted or in pots.  I find they are happiest in low to medium light.  Pot them as for anthuriums or damp growing orchids for best results - its easier to maintain good roots that way.

These plants were grown here, from spore.  You will get one of the plants shown or one similar in size.
