Looking at the pictures of the Christmas fern, some of them don't look like Christmas ferns. Could someone take a look who knows more than I do.

I'm not a fern person, Seedfork, but if you're talking about the entries that come up when you search for Christmas Fern in the database, I don't see any images that look out of place. Some look different because they're photos of the new growth emerging from dormancy, but that's the only difference I see.

I think is see the difference zuzu. Christmas Fern have pinnate leaves and some photos show ferns with bipinnate leaves.

I'd rather keep them than delete them, so I've posted in the Plant ID Forum in the hope of finding a different ID.

I'd like to know what that one is, too. It's very nice.

I second that I agree
At our ranchiito we do NOT keep bees.
They and other critters grace us with their presence, and we provide for their need to the best of our abilities.
