Thanks @clickchick @sara2309 @SylviaDavies! The new fronds will be bronze in colour, in contrast to the mature leaves which are lime green.

This fern blew me away last year from the bedraggled mess I bought from the GC, (reduced of course) to more or less what it is now. Super mild winter has hardly touched it.

@slj how old is yours? Mine took a good 9 months to get to this stage. They like a moist soil with a good dollop of leaf mould around the crown. It gets mostly diffused light, never direct

I've had it a year and is now in a pot and coming back I think I dug it up just in time we have new growth starting to show I think maybe my soil was just to heavy
