Bird’s nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are epiphytic ferns that grow on the surface of other plants in their rainforest habitat. These ferns develop from a central rosette and have long, upright, bright green fronds. Bird’s nest ferns have smooth, lance-shaped fronds that occasionally develop gentle ripples with enough light, unlike some other ferns that grow feathery leaflets.
Bird’s nest ferns favor high humidity, moist, well-drained soil, and medium to bright indirect light. These ferns make excellent bathroom plants because they flourish in warm, humid conditions.
These plants are truly a captivating addition to any indoor garden. Their lush fronds and unique growth pattern make them a favorite among plant enthusiasts.
