Description for Bird Nest Fern, Asplenium Nidus

This unique fern grows in the form of a deep rosette of large, shiny, spear-shaped fronds. New fronds unfurl from the center of the plant. The Bird's nest differs from many in appearance because of its spear-like shaped leaves rather than feather or palm-like fronds.

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 Peat moss based Moderately 20 to 30 degrees C Use any organic fertilizer

Caring for Bird Nest Fern

  • Fertilizer should only be given to the plant two to three times a year.
  • 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.
