Hi! My name is Matt Johnson and I recently purchased a plant at a grocery store. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species as the tag didn't really have a identifier for the plant, just care info.
I'd like to know what species it is, so I can better take care of it and for general knowledge of what's in my home, haha.

I agree, it looks like Phlebodium aureum:
Bear's Paw Fern (Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star')

I believe this particular fern better handles dry air (the thicker the leaf, the less sensitive) and harder to kill. That's not to say it doesn't need humidity or won't do better with it, I just think it won't suffer as easily as a thinner leaved fern.
