In the living rooms and in the family rooms, you can stand their pots on trays of damp pebbles or clay granules. The plant also loves being misted at regular intervals with tepid, soft water unless the humidity of the whole room in the house is kept high through the use of a humidifier.

Most ferns plant are forest or woodland plants and they have tender, delicate roots adapted to the light forest soil, which is really rich in leaf mould and decayed vegetable matter.
