So if it's PLURAL, then it's FERNS. If it's PlURAL POSSESSIVE, then is it stil the same with the singular but in a different way?

Yes, the plural of fern is ferns.
Most plural nouns add the apostrophe after the s.
Singular possessive: fern's
Plural possessive: ferns'
I have one fern in a pot. The fern's pot is too small.
I have several ferns growing in my yard. The ferns' fronds have started to wilt.

Ok. So for plural possessive you put the comma after the S. Why is that?
