I do like this fern also. I have a fairly large one I've posted in the past...although, the trunk is not nearly as tall as these.

Wow, this is awesome. It must have taken many years to get the trunks that length......

Yes, they do take several years to develop the taller trunks.
Although, these dwarf tree ferns with 1ft/31cm of trunk are pretty inexpensive and widely available for sale.
