It's important to choose a fern carefully if you plan to grow them indoors. The selection of ferns below are plants that can be grown successfully - when the correct conditions and care is given.
Birds Nest - Asplenium Nidus
The birds nest fern has to be one of my favorites and looks very different than most other ferns. The attractive fronds on this species are spear like in shape and look shiny when the plant is in good health. Like other ferns moisture is very important for them to grow well.
The Boston fern is one the easiest of ferns to grow indoors, although it still is a needy species and does not like the initial move from one place to another or from outdoors to indoors. The arching fronds grow in a manner that makes them an ideal hanging basket plant.
The Cretan brake is another interesting looking fern that has fronds that are available in different color varieties and vary how they form. Not a hard species to grow indoors and it's propagated by spores on the outer edge of it's leaflets. Not easy to propagate though.
The Maidenhair can be a tricky species to grow because of it's constant need of moisture. It's a popular plant for adding to a collection of plants within a terrarium and grows well within conservatories. The Adiantum raddianum is the easiest to grow from the Adiantum genus.
An interesting fern is the Rabbit's foot fern that grows creeping rhizomes over the pot edges. These creeping rhizomes gives this plant it's common name. Small leaflets are displayed on the fronds with wiry stems. Makes a great hanging basket companion for a conservatory.
