Rabbit's foot needs perfect drainage and average water.

Tree ferns hate indoor cultivation and the poor light and dessicating low humidity are almost guranteed to kill them. A consistently damp conservatory or plantroom is obligatory for this group of ferns, if they absolutely can't be left outside. They can almost never survive as houseplants under normal circumstances.
