two dying ferns...... might they resurrect?

I posted this in the ferns section, but this may be a more visible place to get an answer.... I was given 2 ferns. I put them in the bathroom, thinking they would like the constant moisture from the shower. I watered faithfully. They lasted 2 weeks, then looked exceedingly dried up (leaves) and looked dead. Do ferns not transplant well? do they have good roots in order to bounce back from this pseudo-death?

A photo would be helpful. But all the same, some ferns are 'cast iron' and can be very tough to get rid of. Others are so delicate they'll wither if you just look at them the wrong way. So depends on which fern you've got.
