Becky, that sure reminds me a lot of a fern I had six or seven years ago: Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata 'Fluffy Ruffles Upright')

Lin - This is a small fern. Could it possibly be "Nephrolepis exaltata 'Marisa' " ?

I need a fern that can grow in a terrarium. Maybe a terrarium without a lid?

Becky, that link is to a nursery in the UK and I guess the fern in your photo could be 'Marisa', if it's available here in the U.S. There are so many varieties of Nephrolepis and I don't know if it's possible to identify an exact cultivar if the plant isn't labeled. Shrug! It should do very well in a terrarium environment, with or without a lid.
