Asplenium nidus, more commonly known as bird’s nest fern is an indoor plant native to Southeast Asia, Eastern Australia, Hawaii, and other islands in the tropics. In nature, it is usually found in palm trees. It forms large, divided leaves called “fronds.” The similarity of its leaves to banana leaves give the plant a tropical vibe. The plant comes from the same family as the “Nidus,” a tropical plant that prefers the conditions of the rainforests. Its light green foliage rises from a central rosette and forms wrinkled or wavy edges, resembling a nest. Inside are the emerging fronds that resemble birds’ eggs.
The Bird's Nest Nidus Fern is available in a 4" pot, Product Size :15 Oz or 6" pot, Product Size : 32 Oz depending on your needs.
The Bird's Nest Nidus Fern likes partial shade, indirect sunlight, and a humid atmosphere, just like those found in rainforests.
Nidus doesn’t like direct sunlight and dry soil and atmosphere.
This indoor plant purifies the air and keeps the environment humid, which is good for the skin and respiratory system.
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT
Bird's Nest Nidus thrives in medium to bright indirect sunlight, but it prefers shaded areas. It can also tolerate indoor atmosphere, but it thrives better in humid conditions. The ideal temperature for growth is between 65°F-75°F. The rule of thumb is if you’re comfortable, so is your Bird’s Nest Fern. Water your plant every 1-2 weeks, but allow the soil to dry halfway down before each watering. Also, be sure to check soil moisture before watering as the rate of drying changes depending on sunlight and temperature. Another important tip is to water around the plant, not directly at the center of your fern, to encourage rooting.
