Best fern for water-rooting?

Hi, so I'm looking for a fern that will grow in a hot (80f+), humid (100%) greenhouse under hydroponics (moving water w/plenty of oxygen). I really like rabbit's foot fern and staghorn fern but a nice lush Boston fern does sound nice too. Any of these will do okay in hydroponics? I bought a generic fern from home depot but it rotted to mush in the water and made a huge mess. I think it was a boston or a maidenhair, not too sure.

RE: Best fern for water-rooting?

Aquatic ferns/ mosses would be you best choices . They require constant sources of water. most terrestrial ferns
particularly the epiphytic ones you mention MUST dry out
regularly Good luck gary
