A mystery fern

Hello! I am Lotusleaf from India. I live in Bangalore in the southern part of India, and I have a fair-sized wild tropical garden. There are various ferns, heliconiums, spathyphyllums , ixoras, anthuriums as well as jasmines and hibiscus and different types of bromeliads in my garden. Recently somebody gave me what he called a fern, which looks like squirrel's tail, but it is not an asperagus.It hangs from some moss stuck to a coconut shell in long (1foot and more) fronds. It was brought from the sub Himalayan regions. Can anyone tell me what it could be?
I shall try to upload a photo of it soon.
