Commonly known as Pygmy Sword Fern, Duff's Sword Fern (Nephrolepis 'Duffii')
It requires good watering, too less watering may cause leaf drop and droopy.
Too much water can cause the leaves to turn yellow the tips.
It won't do well in epiphyte mix medium like orchid mix type - this require soil based medium, ideally 50% potting mix and 50% sand (fast draining medium)
Chicken manure or light organic fertilizer works best for this type of fern.
Bright Shaded Light
Unlike most ferns, I find this one a little bit on the sensitive side.
It requires more on the cool humid shaded side. Too hot can burn the leaves.
This may require pruning when the leaf stalks are burned & dry. This will keep the whole fern spray looking neater and able to grow more freely without restrain getting stuck with dry, burned twig like spend fern fronds.
