They have only been in there a week its the way i take them.Seriously they do look a bit greener but not really any bigger.
Katarina yes they should all make new plants,The shoots in the middle were there before I removed it from the parent plant.

Paul according to my book on ferns it is only a very small number of varieties that can reproduce in this way.

I was thinking of dividing a few and hoping to see what happens :D Try to grow a few things from seed and whatever - not much luck as yet - trying tree lupin at moment - I have a green shoot - probably end up being a piece of grass or weed lol
