Dragontail Fern.  This natural hybrid is the result of some hanky-panky out in the woods between two eastern US species, Asplenium rhizophyllum and A. platyneuron.  The result is a fine amalgamation of the good traits of both parents bringing forward the nice pinnae and dark stipe or stem of rhizophyllum with the slim and elegantly tailored leaf blade of platyneuron.  In the wild, this is often found growing on rocks cloaked in the mossy duff of accumulated organic matter and you could replicate this at home provided you have shaded rocks decked out in duff.  Or just plant this bit of pretty in soil with good drainage.
