Cobra Fern, Asplenium Nidus
Asplenium nidus is most commonly referred to as the Bird’s Nest Fern. In the wild, this fern grows everywhere: on trees and on the ground. Descended from an ancient lineage of plants, these plants never flower or produce seeds. Instead, they sporulate to reproduce! Spores are generated from leaf tissue. All plants that sporulate love moisture and can tolerate being perpetually moist (but not wet). It is theorized that in later plants, flowers and cones evolved from modified sporulating leaf structures.
If you’re looking for the perfect tropical houseplant, look no further than the Bird’s Nest Fern. Known for its wavy ripple-edge fronds that grow out of a central rosette, this plant will add a vibrant pop of green to any space. We love it because it’s considered non-toxic, making it safe to keep around your furry friends. A best seller for the best plant parent you know (we’re lookin’ at you).
