How to Care for Bird’s Nest Fern ‘Leslie’

  • Light: Bright indirect or filtered light.
  • Water: Keep the soil slightly moist. Water thoroughly and drain any excess water.
  • Humidity: Average relative humidity of 25% to 49%
  • Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C (65°F to 75°F)
  • Fertilizer: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.
  • Propagation: Division
  • Repotting: This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.

Bird’s Nest Fern ‘Leslie’ - Common Problems

The leaves are turning brown and dying: Remove the brown foliage. Ensure you’re keeping the soil evenly moist and providing the plant with ample humidity.

The plant is dying out in the middle: There are two reasons for this. The first reason, provide bright, indirect light to ensure healthy new growth. The second reason, the plant may need to be divided - yay! Two plants.

My plant isn’t growing any new leaves: Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10. Place your plant in bright indirect light. Direct light will cause burning on the leaves.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Spider mites and fungus gnats.
