Bird's Nest Fern
About Plant- Bird's nest fern (Asplenium nidus) is one of the tropical Asplenium species found in cultivation. Asplenium ferns are naturally epiphytic, meaning they grow on the surface of other plants. In their rainforest homes, they can be found growing high in the crooks of trees. They grow in a series of erect, spoon-shaped, and apple-colored fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to 3 feet long, but this is rare in most indoor situations. These are beautiful plants that require a bit of babying to reach their fullest potential.
Bird's Nest Fern Care
Light- These plants need filtered light to light shade. Don't expose to direct sun other than the very early morning sun.
Soil- Plant the bird's nest fern in loose, rich organic compost or a peat-based potting mix.
Water- These are true jungle plants. Keep their compost moist, but don't let the plant become soggy. Also, avoid watering right into the "nest" as that encourages mold and rot.
Temperature and Humidity- The bird's nest fern will thrive in a warm area. Keep the temperature between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The plant loves humidity and will thrive in humid environments such as the bathroom, a greenhouse, or a terrarium.
Fertilizer- During the growing season (April through September), fertilize about once a month with weak liquid fertilizer.
