ferns, however, do have special needs, such as the staghorn
fern. This fern requires no soil whatsoever to grow and thrive.
Caring for staghorn ferns is very different from caring for
other types of ferns. The staghorn fern will grow on the side
of a tree, or hanging on a piece of wood. Staghorn fern care
involves letting the falling debris remain on the plant as
this gives the plant additional nourishment, other than what
it receives from the air around it.
for ferns also entails the atmosphere around the plants. Most
ferns prefer a good deal of humidity, as they are often native
to rain forests and swamps. Misting ferns regularly is the
best way to obtain this, if natural humidity is not available.
