I like ferns in general but only grow a few, due to space. I have three adiantums, the typical shop bought one which is self sowing all over the place (actually adiantum capillaris-veneris grows wild a few dozen miles from here, one day ill pop round and have a look. The other two are giant tropical species, macrophyllum and peruvianum, and i just got some trapeziforme spores which is another large growing tropical species.

My largest growing fern is a Schellolepis subauriculata which grew up in a terrarium, I think the spores where from (by accident) my in-laws garden in bangkok. Its a spctacular fern but could easily fill my entire conservatory if i let it get that big. I dry it off over winter and let it go dormant, which slows it down...

I dont grow many these day mainly the hardy, types now.
Just brought a nice addiantum hardy forthe garden.
But A. trapeziflorme is a very nice plant they were like weeds in Singapore. There was a very nice specimin plant at the RHS when I worked there I dunno it it is still there or it has gone.
