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
Partial shade Well-drained soil Moderately 20 to 30 degrees C Use any organic fertilizer
