About Ferns

Ferns can be a great option to add greenery to your home and beauty. Apart from this, they can be beneficial for filtering out the toxins and may act as a bioindicator for an ecosystem's health.

What are Ferns?
Ferns belong to the group of vascular plants. They reproduce through spores and neither bear seeds nor flowers. Theoretically, these plants have around 10,560 known extant species.

Ferns are sporophytes and comprise leaves, stem, and root. Flexible to both tropical and temperate zones, they can grow in damp, shaded places or on soil and rocks. Contrarily, a few other varieties can grow with simple leaves having a single vein or compound leaves with several leaflets.

What are the uses of Ferns?

Ferns don't have any economic importance, yet have many uses. They act as great microhabitats by providing shelter and shade to small animals. Some species of fern can act as a biological fertilizer as they can help in nitrogen fixation.

Ferns can act as resistance to certain phytophagous insects. A few herbalists recommended that some species, assist in curing ulcers, rheumatism, intestinal infections, and other ailments. While a few other species are grown for ornamental or household purposes, the rest can reduce contaminations from the soil.
