    1. Yep. I am discovering that this species (at this stage, at least) can be dark red, pink, brownish, hairy, or not hairy. Seems very variable. Posted 10 months ago

''Adiantum pedatum'', the northern maidenhair fern or five-fingered fern, is a species of fern in the family Pteridaceae, native to moist forests in eastern North America. Like other ferns in the genus, the name maidenhair refers to the slender, shining black stipes.
