Wow! That is a beautiful fern Mosh. I am green with envy, hehe. Is it showing signs of stress, like browning or wilting? Are fronds falling off? If not I would leave it alone for now. It seems to be well established to me in the pic. Just my opinion, maybe some others now more about ferns than I do, mine live outside in the garden lol.

I'd say leave it alone if its doing well. Only go bigger when you need to like Uni said.

I have ferns growing in the ground with my Hostas and they have multiplied and spread alot this season. I dug up enough to fill a 5 gallon plastic pot. My son in law has been wanting a fern so Im going to give that to him. If you would want to have two ferns instead of one, I say why not divide it and repot them both. If u had such good luck with one Im sure you will with two....good luck

It has been real hot here in Nebraska, so I plan to put it in a larger pot when it cools down a bit. I didn't know you could split ferns, thanks for the info. I will post a pic and let everyone know how it comes out. BTW I got my necklace in Australia, I have friends that live down there.
