Planting and care

Asplenium nidus can survive either as an epiphytal, or terrestrial plant, but typically grows on organic matter. A peat based potting mix is required. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite (maybe a little less) is one mixture that will be fine. A peat based mixture with organic material is also good. The two main conditions to provide well is enough humidity and to protect the leaves from direct sunlight. It thrives in warm, humid areas in partial to full shade.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
It grows well in indirect sunlight. During the winter the sun is much less harmful to the plant. Peat moss based Low 20 to 30 degrees C Use any organic fertilizer

  • Even then, the fertilizer should only be applied at half strength and should only be given during the spring and summer months.
  • Too much fertilizer will cause deformed leaves with brown or yellow spots or edges.
