Ferns Several species of fern show great variation. Ferns with tough, leathery foliage (such as Boston fern ) adapt better to household conditions; whereas feathery, delicate types (such as maidenhair fern) are less tolerant. All ferns are moisture lovers - they need high humidity and a moist but well-drained soil, high in humus content. Drafts and direct sunlight cause damage to the foliage. They will grow in dim light, but must receive some daylight or artificial light (1,600 lux). Ferns adapt to various temperatures, preferring a cooler room, 15° to 23°C. Fertilize with care. propagate by division. The common house plant ferns; Adiantum (maidenhair fern), Asplenium (bird's nest fern, mother spleenwort), Cyrtomium (holly fern), Davallia (rabbit's foot, squirrel's foot, deer's foot), Platycerium (staghorn fern), Polypodium (hare's foot), Nephrolepsis (sword fern), Pteris (table fern, brake fern).
