Description

Packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Bird's nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) 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 form a series of erect, spoon-shaped, bright green fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to 5 ft. L, but bird's nest ferns kept as houseplants typically have fronds that grow only about 2 ft. L, these ferns have a slow growth rate, they're best planted in the spring, though houseplants generally can be started year-round. The key to a healthy bird's nest fern is providing it with ample warmth, humidity and moisture. When growing it as a houseplant, 1 of the best places to situate a bird's nest fern is near a shower or tub in a bathroom where it will receive optimal humidity and warmth, though it must have a light source as well. The Champion's Bird's Nest does not like hot, dry conditions. Try to maintain at least some degree of humidity by misting regularly or relocating to steamier rooms, this plant is ideal for the bathroom or kitchen. Water thoroughly during the growing season but less so in the winter. Keep moist but do not allow to stand in water. Bird's Nest Ferns are best watered around edge, directly onto the soil, as pouring into the crown may cause it to rot.
