Ferns have sexual mode of reproduction.

Also ferns can only reproduce where there is sufficient moisture to transfer their motile male gametes to the archegonia for fertilization. Mainly ferns are reproduced by spores and at a time in the year they grow small spots under their leaves, known as sori. Each sorus has several sporangia where spores (micro & megaspores) are produced. Sexual reproduction in ferns takes place by spores in sporophytic phase and by reproductive organs i. e. anthredia and archegonia in gametophytic phase. Thus, the reproduction in ferns is achieved by alternation of generation.
