Adiantum is a fairly large genus of around 250 species in the family Pteridaceae. They are very delicate looking ferns, often with thin, black stems, and thin, light green leaves, that grow in rock crevices where water seeps down. One species, the maiden hair fern (A. raddianum), is a popular house plant. Most species are native to the Andes and E-Asia.
