I'm in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia visiting my son and his wife. Stayed at his inlaws in Port Dickson who have a large impressive tropical garden. Stunning and exciting. Of course the weather back home won't allow me to reproduce what I've seen but I love this affect of almost parasitic growth.
I have a tall fern that has ivy growing on it so I'd like to add a small fern or two.

Unless you have a very humid microclime! I had ferns growing as well. And people are buying £30 for a 2 to 3 foot tall fern. I wouldn't bother here as my house is very warm and even the ferns which germinated on their own died. You probably could create a microclime by having a bog, but the moisture in the air is very difficult to replicate. Ferns are lovely. Have a go! If it fails, you have tried!

I have a section of my garden dedicated to ferns but now the tree which gave it shade has lost so many branches the "fernery" is very exposed. I'll have to rethink...:(

Perhaps some evergreen instead of deciduous trees. I think it's possible as we do have a fernery area in Hyde Hall in Essex. Could be hard work, but they are so beautiful.
