Very nice -
From the angle of the photo, it's hard for me to tell if all of the growth is radiating out from one single central point, like a sort of a rosette?

If so, then it is probably one of the crested Aspleniums - commonly called "birdsnest" ferns.

If not, if each blade seems to be coming up from the base sort of randomly, then I'd guess Microsorum (likely M. punctatum), and one of the common names for that is "fishtail fern".

It's actually one of the plants my mom found at the plant show we went to last weekend. I asked and she said the leaves all come from the center.

Using the great info you gave Zuzu, I think I found it online -
Asplenium antiquum 'Leslie'

Also called a Crested Japanese birdsnest fern. Thanks so much for your help!

Cool, glad if I could help you find the ID.

Nice find for your mom.
Some of those Aspleniums will grow to a very impressive size, given time.
I have one that started off as a cute little tabletop fern from the bigbox store ...
and now we have to use a 2-wheel dolly to move it.
