Sowing fern spores outside?

adidas(6/7)February 25, 2013

Just wondering if anyone here has done this and had success? I am currently trying to grow Dryopteris goldiana and Athyrium filix-femina from spores in containers but I travel a lot and it would have been easier just to direct sow. I know numbers will probably be much lower but is it possible to get a few this way?

Have you tried creating terrariums for the planters. I seem to have wild ferns coming up in one terrarium i put in bright north light all the time. Only water it three times a year for the golden button fern and moss that are in it.
