Stipe proliferations are documented in Asplenium monanthes.

Here is an excerpt from Flora of North America, "Single leaf buds at the tips of long narrow fronds are familiar in a number of ferns, notably Asplenium palmeri and the walking fern A. rhizophyllum. Buds are also formed along the rachises of a number of dark-petioled spleenworts, such as A. monanthes. The common eastern American A. platyneuron produces a single bud in the center of the lowermost reduced pinna of large fronds, and a single plant is therefore able to produce clusters of numerous plants over a period of years." hua.huh.harvard.edu/FNA/Volume/V01/Chapter12.shtml
