9 Top Ferns to Grow as Houseplants

9 Top Ferns to Grow as Houseplants 1. Crocodile Fern We love this fern's interesting texture. The bright green fronds have a decidedly reptilian look and it's not tough to see where the common name comes from. It makes a bold statement: At maturity, each frond can reach 3 feet long. Name: Microsorium musifolium 'Crocodyllus' Growing Conditions: Medium to bright light and high humidity Size: To 4 feet tall and wide 2. Lemon Button Fern Lemon button fern produces cute, golden-green fronds with rounded edges (that give it the buttonlike appearance).

Name: Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Lemon Button' Growing Conditions: Medium to bright light and high humidity Size: To 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide 3.

Rabbit's-Foot Fern This slow-growing fern offers dark green, fine textured fronds and fuzzy stems that creep down over the pot or along the soil.

It's versatile and easy to grow. Name: Asplenium nidus Growing Conditions: Medium to bright light and high humidity Size: To 5 feet tall and wide (but usually 1-2 feet indoors) 7.
