I bought this little guy at a store and he has no name. Someone said he was a fern tree? Tried googling that and nothing similar came up. Hope one of you can help me! Thanks in advance!!

Perhaps a Parlor Palm.

You might be thinking tree fern but that is not what it is. It is a palm -- very young -- not a coconut palm but it's too young for me to ID yet. It could be any number of the bunching palms.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Whenever you repot, try to separate these individuals a bit. They need more elbow room, but the growers stick a ton of seeds in the middle of the pot, creating a crowd that's too crowded (as they get bigger.)

This pot has 4 trees in it, which is still pretty crowded.
