Bird's Nest Fern - Crissie
This Bird's Nest Fern is a real show stopper producing spoon-shaped and apple-coloured fronds that rise from a central rosette. This plant looks beautiful in a pot, hanging basket or mounted.
Bird’s nest ferns grow best in medium to low indirect light. These ferns are often grown for their crinkly leaves and the light they receive will affect how crinkled the leaves are. A bird’s nest fern that receives more light, for example, will have more crinkled leaves, while one that receives less light will have flatter leaves.
These are true jungle plants. Keep their compost moist, but don't let the plant become soggy. Also, avoid watering right into the "nest" as that encourages mold and rot. Water the soil rather than the plant.
Botanical name: Asplenium nidus
This plant comes in a standard 205mm diameter plastic nursery pot.
