The Bird’s Nest Fern is a versatile addition to your home! Its bright green fronds grow out from a central rosette, giving it a tight formation as it grows. Native to tropical and rainforest regions of the world, it naturally grows on trees and other plants, enjoying the humid conditions provided for it. It can be introduced to your home without any prior adjustments to temperature, humidity or lighting, and both its watering and feeding requirements are extremely relaxed. The Bird’s Nest Fern is a unique houseplant that is guaranteed to spice up your home decor.
Also known as Asplenium Nidus, the Bird’s Nest Fern possesses a unique appearance that other houseplants simply cannot imitate. Its leaves form a collection of bright green, spoon-shaped fronds that rise out of a central rosette. Unlike other houseplants that grow from the ground or along rocky coasts, the Bird’s Nest Fern is epiphytic, meaning that it grows on the surface of other plants. When found in nature, its fronds can grow up to 5 ft. long, while its indoor variants tend to see growth out to around 2 ft.
The Bird’s Nest Fern is native to rainforests and other tropical regions, so it enjoys the humid, shaded conditions that such environments would provide. It adapts extremely well to the temperature, humidity and lighting levels found in the average household, however, and it enjoys an occasional humidity boost through the introduction of a humidifier or the occasional misting of its leaves.
There are very few varieties of Bird’s Nest Ferns, and of those variations that exist, none truly diverge from the original. The “Osaka” variation offers leaves that are strap-like with rippled edges, while the “Victoria” variation’s leaves are long, wavy and tongue-shaped. All types of Bird’s Nest Fern are highly desired on the houseplant market.
This plant is considered to be non-toxic for humans and animals, which is great news for houseplant owners with small children and pets.
