Ferns Are a Non-Flowering Plant But Offer Graceful and Delicate Green Fronds
The fern is a class of non-flowering vascular plants that have roots, stems, and complex leaves. Ferns do not have seeds but reproduce by tiny spores and are highly diverse in habitat and form. There are different types of ferns; some are twining and vine-like, others float on the surface of ponds. The majority of them grow in warm and damp places; others grow in the deepest, darkest woodlands. They grow everywhere, in every conceivable area. Although ferns do not have colorful blooms, they offer graceful and delicate green fronds that look very refreshing.
Varieties of ferns differ in size. Some ferns grow from 1–1.2 cm tall only, while the vast tree ferns grow from 10 to 25 meters in height. There are ten-thousand five hundred known extant fern species, but estimates have ranged as high as fifteen-thousand. The number differs since certain groups are not yet officially verified, and more new species are unexplored tropical areas. There are two classifications of garden ferns based on their habitat: the ground-dweller ferns and the rock-dweller ferns. The ground-dwellers are popular plants, and they adapt quickly to garden conditions. They are common in swamps, marshes, conifer forests, and sometimes, in the banks, along streamsides, or on mossy grounds. Rock-dwellers need specialized treatment, but growers easily cultivate them in rock gardens or on stone walls. They grow in bare cliffs, at the sides of the waterfalls, on top of boulders and tree trunks.
Ferns are Low-maintenance, Tolerate Different Soil Type and Require Less Care
Ferns are low-maintenance plants and can tolerate different soil types, and prefer well-drained soils. Mulching is necessary for retaining moisture and keeping the roots cool. The yearly application of organic matter may be required. Prune occasionally to remove old or broken fronds; otherwise, constant care is not highly needed. Ferns adapt well to their environment and thrives in shade or sun as long as they are well-watered.
Ferns help rid harmful toxins at home, thus, making them the best air purifying houseplants. They improve the humidity by restoring the air's moisture naturally and make the house look stylish when decorated with ferns.
Ferns attract few pests that include scales, which are the most damaging pest for ferns and hemispherical scale. They turn the fronds yellow, or worst, leading to the plant’s death. But ferns grow well under proper conditions, so it is best to check the plant first for possible pests before buying them.
