Unidentifiable plant - Knowledgebase Question

St. Peters, Mi
Question by catalinablon

I bought a plant from a Home Depot that no one is able to identify. It grows like a fern with leaves that radiate from the center and unfurl as they grow, but they are single, large, stiff leaves with random lobing. I haven't had it long enough to see if it flowers or has spore cases. The internet and identification guides don't have anything. I can send a picture if you need it. Thanks!

Sight unseen, I'm offering an educated guess - Bird's-nest fern (Asplenium nidus). Its growth habit is just as you describe. Do a web search and compare a photo with your plant.
