Ferns and fittonias

I've been feeling a bit more confident with my plant care, so I decided to venture out and get some new additions to my little apartment garden. The one in the back is an austral gem fern, also known as a hen & chicken fern, parsley fern, or a mother spleenwort.
Indirect and partial sun plants will probably thrive the best in our apartment, especially here when cloudy days are all we have sometimes. This one is a lemon button fern, known by quite a few names. My favorites are fishbone fern, kupukupu, and ladder fern.
This one is a fittonia, also known as a nerve plant, mosaic plant, and painted net leaf. My mom liked this one in particular for the striking reds against the greens.

We also bought a rex begonia that I didn't get a chance to photograph today, so I'll try to get better shots of it later. :)
