    I was a friends house today and noticed this weird house plant.
    The tendrils look like spiders legs! :confused: :eek:

    What's it called?

    We've no idea.

    OK, possibly a Feather Fern and it looks like it needs to be re-potted!!! The tendrils ,we think, are roots and it desperately needs a larger pot.

    Hope this helps

    Not a feather fern but agree it looks like it needs re-potting, possibly aerial roots looking for somewhere to locate.

    Rabbits foot fern maybe
