Q.sword fern

Anonymous added on June 20, 2015 | Answered

We have countless sword ferns. One frond I just saw split near the tip into two separate tips. This seems quite unusual. Any ideas? Thank you.

It is unusual. It is likely just a mutation, known as a sport in the plant world. If the plant looks healthy otherwise, it is just that some code in its DNA got mixed up and created a plant version of a Siamese twin.
