    Nice picture, but why is there a fern in the background? Are you trying to replicate a jungle-like environment?

    *laughs* Does the fern annoy you??!

    When you set up a greenhouse with highland conditions and lots of live Sphagnum, the ecosystem takes its own course and things like ferns spontaneously generate out of the moss strata. There are at least four species of ferns growing in the greenhouse - some of which have made a home in the gravel floor of the greenhouse. It has nothing to do with willing anything to happen, its what happens if you allow it.

    You get ferns as weeds? I usually just end up with grass or similar such plants, which I proceed to remove whenever I see them. Carefully, so their roots don't break off and spread the weeds.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Ferns-as-weeds -- pretty much, yes. It's what happens in that environment. They spontaneously generate out of the various brands of dried sphagnum I use for my media.
