Doesn't look like a fern.

Thanks! They are neat and unusual looking plants. These are considered "air-plants" as they require no soil to grow. They can be mounted on the sides of trees, grown on a platform or suspended with chains. There are different varieties, but I am not sure how they are classified with other plants. They are of the genus Platycerium.
