The Bird’s Nest Fern is the perfect plant for those looking to introduce a bit of tropical wonder to their home decor! Native to areas of Hawaii, Madagascar and Australia, this houseplant is classified as being epiphytic, meaning that they are primarily found growing on other plants in the wild. As a result, you will find that their indoor variant’s foliage grows out from close to the soil, instead of growing out from a protruding stem as many other houseplants would.
The foliage itself is a collection of spoon-shaped, bright green fronds that meet at a central rosette. In the wild, these fronds can grow to be approximately 5 feet in length, but your indoor variant’s fronds will reach up to 2 feet. As is the case with most tropical houseplants, the Bird’s Nest Fern grows best when offered extra warmth and humidity, so make sure to provide yours with the proper care.
