Q.Help with Plant identification?

Zone 27609 | Danacstone added on October 4, 2019 | Answered

I received this plant in a mystery box online, and it did not come with identifying info. I’m assuming it is a juvenile version of a normal plant. I have tried Picture This and Planta and neither come anywhere close. I’d really like to know so I can ensure appropriate light, water, soil, etc. Anyone have a good guess? I would greatly appreciate it!

It looks like the Silver Dollar Maiden Hair Fern, or Adiantum peruvianum

There are many types of Adiantum with many different styles and looks, and they all have very similar care.
