Hi all, I have this fern type plant and have not been able to find its name or even common name , it appears to have roots growing from its leaves ? I no it must be common as it was in a cheap mixture lot. Any info on it would be great as its one of the only plants I can grow, others seem to melt away.

It looks Bolbitis. if it is, then it's a nice plant to have.

Does it have a rhizome/ tuber that the roots come out of?
If it does, the plant shoud be tied to some wood or rocks, or at least keep the rhizome above the substrate.

No it came as separate stems with little or no roots and last time I moved it there were still only small roots. The ferny bit or leaves are pretty rigid and quite brittle. It is growing small leaves out of the bigger leaves but it's the root type things that can be seen on the stems an d below the top leaf that I'm curious of.

It's not bolbitis - or at least it looks nothing like the bolbitis I have.
