What is the habitat of a fern?

A large part of the ferns reproductive cycle involves damp, moist (even wet) conditions, hence the tendency for them to be found in these places.

Ferns are fairly well adapted and can grow in soil, tree trunks and even in the canopies of trees; they normally thrive in semi-shade and high humidity.
