Well I know theres the fern you get from stores, Windelov, and narrow leaf

Windelov. Funky little plant.

Im sure there are several others though that I cant list on the top of my head.

There's lots of different types of java fern, narrow, needle, crested, trident and miniature are all ones that I know of. There are probably more out there but these are ones that I am most familiar with.

I have mini java fern and it is awesome. The leaves only grow to a fraction of the size (length wise not width) of standard java fern.
