Asplenium nidus, also known as a Bird’s Nest fern, is a beautiful fern originating from the tropics of Asia and Africa. Bird’s Nest ferns grow in a full rosette shape with new growth stemming from the center of the plant. They grow best in dappled light or medium indirect light. They can tolerate low light but will grow more slowly. Bird’s nests should be watered regularly so that the soil doesn’t dry out, however, take care to let the soil drain during watering to prevent root rot. They do best in high humidity areas such as kitchens and well-lit bathrooms or will be happy with a regular misting.
The Bird's Nest fern thrives in medium indirect light, but also tolerates low light. This bushy plant's leaves can burn in direct sun, so be mindful of placement in the home.
We suggest watering the Bird's Nest fern once a week allowing soil to drain and dry slightly. The fern should not be allowed to completely dry out.
Similar to humans, plants including the fern prefer temperatures of 65⁰ to 85⁰.
A very light feeder, apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every 1 - 3 months.

This clay-based pot minimizes over-watering and helps plants maintain healthy roots by absorbing excess moisture from the soil. In addition to its health benefits terracotta is known for developing a unique patina that gives it a beautiful and timeless look as it ages.
