I really enjoy growing ferms and have cared for only a few. You can click on the names below the photos to go to their own pages. Hopefully, I can have a suitable place to grow more ferns in the future.

I brought this Microsorum punctatum ‘Grandiceps’ (Elkhorn Fern) home from Lowe’s in 2011 when I lived in Leland, Mississippi. I gave it to a friend when I moved back to the family farm in Missouri in 2013. The genus name has changed several times…
These two Nephrolepis exaltata (Boston Fern) were brought home in 2009 when I lived in Mississippi. I kept them until I moved back to the family farm in Missouri in 2013. I kept them outside in the summer and they did fine. It was a different story when they were inside for the winter. They took A LOT of work! I was told that most people buy new ones every spring and throw them in the garbage in the fall… GEEZ!
I also brought this Platycerium bifurcatum (Staghorn Fern) home from Lowe’s in 2011 when I lived in Mississippi. I really enjoyed it and hated leaving it behind when I moved back to Missouri in 2013.
This Zealandia pustulata (Kangaroo Paw Fern) was brought home in 2009 and it was a great plant until I had to give it to a friend when I moved in 2013.
