Bright indirect to low light
Water every 1–2 weeks
Native to tropical regions such as Southeast Asia, Australia, East Africa, and Hawaii to name a few, Bird’s Nest Fern (Asplenium Nidus) are typically found in palm trees. Given the right indoor environment, they will thrive and make for a wonderfully unique houseplant. Ferns come in a wide variety of colours and textures. The Bird’s Nest Fern has large simple fronds that are tropical-like in that they resemble banana leaves. Their fronds are light green, often crinkled or wavy, and rise from a central rosette. The rosette is fuzzy where the emerging fronds resemble bird’s eggs – hence the common name.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out halfway down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Do not water directly into the centre of your fern, but instead, water around it.
Tolerates average indoor humidity. Prefers high humidity.
The average home temperature of 65°F-75°F. If you’re comfortable, the Bird’s Nest Fern is comfortable.
Indoors, the Bird’s Nest Fern can grow to approximately 2’.
