Fishtail Fern is also known as Microsorum punctatum and is a beautiful houseplant that is grown on lava rock. A fern from the Old World tropics, and superficially resembling the Birds Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus), this plant grows as an epiphyte (attached to trees), lithophyte (attached to rocks) and on the ground. Its long, strappy fronds are oblong to slightly elliptical, grow almost upright and are a bright green colour. The name Microsorum relates to the small spore cases (sori) that form on the undersides of the fronds, and punctatum refers to the dotty, or spotty, arrangement of the tiny spore cases.
