INTEREST Indoor ferns are evergreen foliage plants which do not produce flowers or seeds. Some originate from tropical and subtropical climates, but you also find many from more temperate climes. The former types do well in warmer spaces - whereas the latter do much better in cooler temperatures. All ferns love moisture and don't enjoy drying out. Finding the best combination of light, moisture and temperature is the key to a happy fern.
