That's a fern
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ferns (Pteridophyta)
Athyrium filix-femina unrolling young frond
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Plantae
Division: Pteridophyta

* †Cladoxylopsida
* Psilotopsida
* Equisetopsida (alias Sphenopsida)
* Marattiopsida
* Polypodiopsida (alias Pteridopsida, Filicopsida)

A fern is any one of a group of about 12,000 species of plants.[3] Unlike mosses, they have xylem and phloem (making them vascular plants). They have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants. Ferns do not have either seeds or flowers (they reproduce via spores).

I don't know which kind though
