that is a very interesting plant. Does it grow naturally that way or is it planted?

I'm not sure that's the same shoestring fern as I've seen...all the ones here that have been pointed out to me look like little plastic green strings? I posted a picture of what I've been told is Vittaria lineata...

Kate
I did some looking into this plant and totally agree that it is not shoestring fern. I have also contacted the admins , but they said they would let Hetty (Dutchlady1) move it , so we will just hope she finds the correct name for the pretty plant and moves or deletes it fore accuracy sake

Hilarious!
Yes, I believe Hetty will concur with that decision!

Kate,
Your photos look more like a match for Moa (Psilotum nudum)

Thanks for sorting that out. I merely repeated what I had been told about the plant and should have done my homework before posting the picture.
