NO I actually was looking for folks in the colder climates such as I, Maine
zone 5 who have houseplants, and namely unusual ferns or even common ones for
that matter that will take temperatures of 40* in dark unheated rooms.

Hi Kyle:  was this question directed to me??
I am in West Los Angeles, 7 miles from the ocean.  I grow most  of my ferns
hanging in a somewhat sheltered south eastern corner of my  yard.  Right
now it is 52 degrees.  It went down to 38 this  am.
What part of the country are you in & it sounds like you have  wonderful
places to get ferns from.
Most little nurseries are gone in L. A.

Where are you at that you have so little  variation in temperature?
Believe it or not, if you really just hunker down  and start hunting, you
will be amazed at what you can find.  I've  bought Blechnum gibbum at
Home Depot, Asplenium 'fimbriata' at Walmart, and  dozens of other from
those places and Lowe's and such.  Little  nurseries on the side of the
road can turn up remarkable surprises at  pennies on the dollar, as well.
I bought Pyrrosia hastata and Blechnum  serrulatum from just one place
for $3 a gallon on the hastata and $20 for a  7 gallon serrulatum.
