How to get rid of ferns?

last year

Living in Florida, Ferns come up in all my potted orchids, potted dirt plants, etc.

They look like Boston Ferns and a few others that are grown and sold as potted plants in colder climates.

We live in Florida and these Ferns are so invasive they take over my many potted plants. You can't pull them out as their root system is mesh-like and impossible to get out without pulling the whole plant out of the pot and cutting this mesh ball out. Even then, they reappear.

I can't use anything which would hurt my desirable plants.

Anyone have ideas?
