Best Fern for Bathroom?

Hello. I have been advised that ferns absorb moisture in bathrooms. Is this correct and if so which one is best?

    Not sure about absorbing moisture, but they like a moist/humid environment.
    I used to have a stag horn fern in my north facing bathroom - it lasted 4-5 years and got to quite a good size.

    I'm not sure they would absorb all that moisture. Heating on and an air vent would be far more efficient.
