Birds Nest Fern - not just for the empty-nesters.

작년

The Birds Nest Fern is native to several warmer climate countries including Australia. It's Botanical name is Asplenium nidus, and there are several species including one with forked fronds. This plant is an Epiphyte in it's natural habitat, meaning that spores ( like small seeds ) lodge and germinate in places like the forks of trees that offer good support, where they grow, and the rosette of fronds collect falling leaves, birds droppings, dead insects etc and these provide nutrients for the plant. Natural rainfall provides water and helps decay the leaves that the plant collects. Birds Nest Ferns also grow happily in garden soil as long as it is kept moist ,shaded from the hot sun and preferably high humidity. Young plants will grow in suitable spots by themselves.

Birds Nest Ferns are suitable for pots and can be grown indoors or outdoors where they add a tropical feel to a garden. Allow a bit of space for this plant, as they grow quite large, having fronds up to 2 metres long. They are best suited to cool temperate, temperate and warmer climates and are common around Sydney gardens, where i took these photos.new7 022.jpgNew 6 077.jpgnew7 116.jpg

@ctrl-alt-nwo, The Birds Nest Fern already in my home garden.

The bird’s nest fern plant gets its name from the fact that the center of the plant resembles a bird’s nest. It is also occasionally called a crow’s nest fern. Bird’s nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are identified by their flat, wavy or crinkly fronds. Their appearance can bring to mind a seaweed plant growing on dry land. Bird’s nest fern is an epiphytic fern, which means in the wild it typically grows on other things, like tree trunks or buildings. When you buy it as a houseplant, it will be planted in a container, but it can be affixed to planks and hung on a wall much like staghorn ferns.

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. Keep in mind that too much light or direct light will cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die.

Fav. comment Award ! Great Pics, thanks.

The Bird's nest differs from many in appearance because of it's spear like shaped leaves rather than feather or palm like fronds. The leaves (have a brown mid-rib and wavy margin) grow up to about 2ft long from a rosette of fronds where new leaves appear when the plant is producing new growth.

While a plant is young and small it can be placed anywhere in a home or office with the correct conditions provided (light, etc.). Once it matures though, you'll need to provide enough space for the rosette of fronds to spread out over 2ft each side. A conservatory is best suited or a fairly large room once it does mature.

Silly Sausage Award ! Thanks for your good choice of Pics.

The Bird's Nest Fern or Asplenium nidus is one of the several popular and beautiful ferns grown as houseplants. The Bird's Nest Fern is easy to care for and suits many homes making it a versatile houseplantFerns like this one can be grown in North facing windows perfectly well and will truly relish the type of light and cooler temperatures these places receive.

In return the Bird's Nest Fern will give you lots of naturally glossy leaves arranged in a circular pattern which resemble a bird's nest (hence the common name for these houseplants).

While this fern finds it home in the humid tropics, it can be found growing in and around trees. This may seem a little odd but there is a reason for this relationship. First, the tree provides additional humidity and two, it provides shade.

To successfully grow this fern indoor, we must first replicate the two conditions described above.

The first thing we need to consider is the light requirement of this plant. Light can be tricky when it comes to the Bird’s Nest Fern. The best type of sunlight for this plant is bright light without direct sunlight. If the plant receives too much sunlight, the fronds will become light green or will have burn marks. Having said that, there really nothing wrong with letting the plant have a little early morning or pre-sunset light.

I love reading your posts as they giving me great ideas , i thinking when will be the best time to do it on my own as the winter is coming

Beautiful plant my friend and epiphytic, rosette-shaped fern with sword-like, undivided fronds growing from a central region. Fronds are smooth-textured, glossy, light green with a dark brown/black midrib, 60 to 120cms long and 7 to 20cms wide. In natural conditions this fern can be seen high up in crooks of trees but is generally planted at ground level, beneath a canopy of trees or tree ferns, preferring filtered light, to light shade. Grows well alongside Orchids and Bromeliads. Likes a loose, enriched, organic soil mix, kept as moist and humid as possible. Do not expose to direct sun, other than early morning sun and avoid frost prone zones and coastal exposure. In the growing season can be fertilised twice weekly with a liquid fertiliser but do not apply to centre of rosette.

SPECIFICATIONS

Dimensions Height: 0.6 to 1m, Width: 1.5m
Aspect Part shade
Origin Eastern Australia, tropical south east Asia
Pests & diseases Snails and slugs in garden situations and Mealy Bug on indoor plants.
Typical sizes 140mm, 200mm, 300mm

Thank you @ctrl-alt-nwo

Amazing plant @ctrl-alt-nwo! Commonly known as a bird’s nest fern, Asplenium nidus has many names. For instance, in Malaysia it is called: Rumah Langsuyar, in the Philippines: Pakpak-lauin and in China: Tai wan shan su hua. There are also many synonyms for this fern, which include Asplenium ficifolium, Asplenium antiquum, Neottopteris mauritiana, Neottopteris nidus. It belongs to the Plantae Kingdom , Pteridophyta phylum, Polypodiopsida class, Polypodiales order, the Aspleniaceae family, Asplenium genus.

Geographical distribution:

This fern is a native of tropical Africa , Australia and tropical Asia. Asplenium nidus either grow terrestrially on the ground, or epiphytically on the trees. Sometimes they grow on rocks (Piggott, 1988).

The sword-shaped fronds grow from the centre of the plant to form an inverted cone. The fronds are very long approximately 50-120cm, and 10-20cm wide, also the leaves or fronds are light green, often crinkled, with a smooth-edged blade and a black midrib that is obvious. The sporangia develop in clusters called sori, covered by an elongated indusium on the back of the fronds. It has roots for absorption of water and minerals from the soil (Koh, 2009). In terms of size this alters according to the habitat (Piggott, 1988).

Aha! I have this fern in my garden, my friend gave it to me three years ago. Now they are quite big! I wish I could eat their leaves! So green and crunchy!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Have seen them and yeah they do look pretty nice as well. While recently I was able to get few images and most of them were about different kind of leaves, well this kind of reminded me of those images .

It is a very beautiful plant @ctrl-alt-nwo and makes a nice decoration to trees too. It thrives in a wet environment.

A great plant, when I saw that it was in a tree, I understood why it got its name. it is very similar to a bird's nest.

Великолепное растение, когда я увидел, что она находитбся на дереве я понял, почему оно получило такое название. оно очень похоже на птичье гнездо.

Luxurious ferns stand out not only the status of an ancient plant. These garden stars do not know the leaves of equal beauty, lacy and fascinating, by the ability to instantly change the atmosphere in the ensemble and create strange shady thickets.
One of the distinguishing features of ferns has always been a clean, saturated color of greenery, but in color, these plants are not so simple as they seem at first glance. Indeed, among the ferns there are spectacular unusual species that can surprise with unusual textures and unusual shades of the palette, the original form. However, with all their glamor, these plants never lose their legendary mystery. This is an amazing racialism. Thank you for sharing information about this.

Asplenium nidus is an epiphytic species of fern in the family Aspleniaceae, native to tropical southeastern Asia, eastern Australia, Hawaii, Polynesia, Christmas Island, India, and eastern Africa. It is known by the common names bird's-nest fern (a name shared by other aspleniums) or simply nest fern.

A 2015 molecular study found that Asplenium nidus is polyphyletic, meaning that some populations were not closely related to others—A. nidus from Madagascar, Vanuatu and New Guinea were more closely related to other species than each other. Hence a revision with sampling of the species across its range was required to delineate the taxon and identify cryptic species.

Indeed, i saw this kind of plants and birds are always love to made their nest every branch of this plants..

interesting knowing about it for the first time thanks for sharing this post the comments really help a lot too :)

@ctrl-alt-nwo, Birds Nest Fern is really awesome in my opinion and in my observation it's reflecting as this plant is reflecting as plants with the Multi Hands which are spreading to hug the essence of nature. And i strongly believe that these kind of plants can make our environment more beautiful and more pleasant and these plants also hold the creative essence. And i also believe and in my opinion the creator is a Artist and these natural beauties are live art pieces.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Yes, I can find it in my area and this type of plant often grows attached to a large tree. this plant also has black fibers or feathers the size of a stick.

Ferns that belong to the asplenium genus, one of which is glimpsed by lovers of ornamental plants. The form of ferns from this genus has similarities to bird nests. Because of its resemblance, ornamental plant lovers call it a bird's nest nail. Bird nest nails multiply with spores. These spores are located at the bottom of the leaf and are brown. Life of asplenium is epiphytic. This means that in his life only attached to the host plant. Bird nest nails take nutrients from organic materials that rot and stick to the host plant.

The type of asplenium that is often maintained by the community is Asplenium nidus. But fanatic plant lovers are not satisfied with this type. Currently breeders are developing unique and rare bird nest nails. With the mutation treatment, the chicks that occur can produce variegata and cristata types. Cross breeds can produce new hybrids. The results of the mutation treatment are temporary. If people are not good at maintaining this bird's nest, it's easy to change. Plants that occur from mutations tend to return to their original nature. The results of crosses are permanent. This hybrid is expected by fans of ferns.

Asplenium treatment is easy. This plant needs a moist, wet and shaded place. In asplenium treatment should avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Leaves exposed to direct sunlight will be seen burning. The leaves will be yellow until finally brown and die. Providing organic matter is needed to add nutrients. Organic ingredients such as leaf litter, coconut fiber and straw can be used by hobbyists in asplenium treatment.

The name and the plant are great. I never saw this plant, I know just the real Bird Nest. The last picture ist wonderful!

How it looks: Ferns are quite an interesting group of plants to grow indoors because of the various types of fronds they display, so you could have three ferns in one room from the same class and genera that look kind of unrelated.


The Bird's nest differs from many in appearance because of it's spear like shaped leaves rather than feather or palm like fronds. The leaves (have a brown mid-rib and wavy margin) grow up to about 2ft long from a rosette of fronds where new leaves appear when the plant is producing new growth.

Displaying: While a plant is young and small it can be placed anywhere in a home or office with the correct conditions provided (light, etc.). Once it matures though, you'll need to provide enough space for the rosette of fronds to spread out over 2ft each side. A conservatory is best suited or a fairly large room once it does mature.

Care level: The two main conditions to provide well is enough humidity and to protect the leaves from direct sunlight (they become scorched), although some sunlight is ideal for them. If a person has sufficient living space and can follow the straight forward care instructions below, anyone can grow and maintain them.

https://www.epicgardening.com/birds-nest-fern/

Bird's Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus) is a relatively carefree plant with an upright, clumping form and large fronds.

Light: Bird's Nest Fern grows best in filtered or indirect light. An east- or north-facing window is ideal.

Watering: Water your plant as necessary to keep the potting mix evenly moist but not soggy. These plants also benefit from moderate humidity when grown indoors. The best way to increase the humidity around your plants is to run a humidifier nearby. You can also set plants in trays filled with pebbles or gravel. Add water to a level just below the tops of the pebbles (if the potting mix in the pots comes in contact with the water, the mix will draw water into the pot, which will cause the mix to become saturated, eventually leading to rot). Refill trays frequently to replace water lost through evaporation. (Our Humiditrays perform the same function without the need for pebbles.)

Temperature: Bird's Nest Fern prefers to be kept at regular room temperature, with nighttime temperatures above 60°F.

Fertilizer: During the growing season (generally April into September) fertilize potted plants once a month using a houseplant formula mixed at 1/2 strength. Withhold fertilizer in fall and winter, when most plants rest.

Our planet is 300% spherical)) Different continents, different in their current type of plant, and their preferences and methods of reproduction are the same. Víscum - family Santalaceae lives in our area. This plant has a very sticky juice. The seeds are glued to the paws of birds and spread to other trees. I have long been writing about this plant article. It was interesting to read your article. Wonderful representative of the world of plants.

beautiful! (btw, just put up the "super" bullish scenario for silver and how the "ratio" favors the "white metal"..thank you..

The times have passed when ferns reigned on the planet, the species struck them with a variety of leaf shapes and inhabited all the spaces of the planet, and now they form thickets mostly in damp and warm countries. For the modern gardener, original plants are of decorative value and can perfectly decorate the interior. I found some photos with different types of fern. I think you will like it. Thank you

Bird’s Nest Fern Care – How To Grow Bird’s Nest Fern

images (2).jpeg

When most people think of ferns, they think of feathery, airy fronds, but not all ferns actually look like this. The bird’s nest fern is an example of a fern that defies our preconceived ideas of what a fern should look like. Even better is the fact that a bird’s nest fern plant makes an excellent low light houseplant.

About the Bird’s Nest Fern Plant
The bird’s nest fern plant gets its name from the fact that the center of the plant resembles a bird’s nest. It is also occasionally called a crow’s nest fern. Bird’s nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are identified by their flat, wavy or crinkly fronds. Their appearance can bring to mind a seaweed plant growing on dry land.

Bird’s nest fern is an epiphytic fern, which means in the wild it typically grows on other things, like tree trunks or buildings. When you buy it as a houseplant, it will be planted in a container, but it can be affixed to planks and hung on a wall much like staghorn ferns.

How to Grow Bird’s Nest Fern
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. Keep in mind that too much light or direct light will cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die.

4734520879_3e861edb51_b.jpg

Care for a Bird’s Nest Fern In addition to light, another important aspect of bird’s nest fern care is its watering. Under ideal circumstances, all ferns would like to have consistently moist, but not wet, soil. However, part of the reason that bird’s nest fern makes an ideal houseplant is that it will tolerate soil that dries out from time to time. Furthermore, this plant does not require the same level of humidity that many other kinds of ferns need, making the care for a bird’s nest fern far more forgiving to the occasionally forgetful houseplant owner than other ferns.

Bird's nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are actually one of two Asplenium species found in cultivation. The other, often called the spleenwort or mother fern (Asplenium bulbiferum), is much harder to grow and looks nothing like its cousin. These ferns are naturally epiphytic, and in their rainforest homes, they can be found growing high in the crooks of trees.plants_hero_birdsnest.jpg
They grow in a series of erect, spoon-shaped, and apple-colored fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to three feet, but this is rare in most indoor situations.These are beautiful plants but require a bit of babying to reach their fullest potential.BirdsNest1.jpg
If you follow the correct growing conditions for your bird's nest fern, it will likely live for many years and always look its best.Light: Filtered light to light shade. Don't expose to direct sun other than very early morning sun.xbird-nest-fern-in-forest.jpg.pagespeed.ic.0gA9c8u-Y2.jpgWater: These are true jungle plants—keep their compost moist and provide the highest humidity possible.Temperature: Bird's nest ferns will begin to suffer below about 55 F for prolonged periods. They are best kept between 70 F and 80 F, with high humidity. A warming pad will often help dormant plants.bird-nest-fern-plant-500x500.jpg

Botanical Name: Asplenium nidus

Bird Nest Fern is one of the easiest types of ferns to grow. This tropical native is fast-growing and will live for many years with good care.

In its natural habitat, it grows as an epiphyte (a plant that grows on trees) in the warm, moist, tropical rain forests. Despite its tropical beginnings, it adapts well to being a house plant. Place your potted fern where it is out of direct sun and away from drafts, which can scorch the fronds. Provide humidity and you'll keep it healthy.

This unique fern grows in the form of a deep rosette of large, shiny, spear-shaped fronds. New fronds unfurl from the center of the plant. Its fronds are fragile, so I'd put this fern where passersby won't brush up against it.

As Bird Nest Fern ages, the oldest, outer fronds will turn brown. This is normal. You can cut them off at the base to keep the plant looking neat.

Those upright fronds tend to be dust-catchers. Keep the broad, shiny fronds dust-free by spraying with water and gently wiping them with a damp cloth. Never use leafshine products on ferns because it can severely damage their delicate fronds.

Repot young plants in spring, every couple years or when the roots fill the pot. If you find that the roots are attached to the pot, run a knife around the inside to loosen them before you can remove the rootball. You may need to break the pot to remove it. It's a good idea to use a container with drainage holes to avoid soggy soil. Take care not to pack down the potting mix; this fern likes a loose mixture.

This fern's problems are few. Watch for scale insects, that look like small, brown discs on fronds. If you find an invasion of these pests, spray with soapy water followed by clean water. Don't use insecticides on ferns because they are easily damaged by chemicals.

http://www.guide-to-houseplants.com/birds-nest-fern.html

Features: The frond is fresh green, a broad and very long ribbon (50-150cm) with slightly wavy edges and a black central rib. The spores appear on the underside in fine lines. The fronds emerge in a rosette around a central stem which is usually not visible. Dead leaves collect in this 'nest' of fronds and are held firmly in place as new fronds emerge. Roots from the central stem grow into the dead leaves, further consolidating the decaying leaves into a huge spongy mass. This mass soaks up rainwater, while the ongoing decay releases nutrients. Thus the fern is self-sufficient in food and water even though it lives high up from the ground. As the older fronds die, they droop downwards forming a skirt of dry fronds under the younger, green fronds.

This is a far out fern with a far out name! I first saw this Crested Japanese Bird’s Nest Fern, whose botanic name is Asplenium antiquum “Leslie”, at our farmers market and had to have it. I love those wild, wavy edges and the crispy noise it makes when touched. I must say, this plant reminds me of an unusual green that I’d put in my salad.

Asplenium_nidus_Bird's_Nest_Fern_ასპლენიუმი.JPG
The bird’s-nest fern (Asplenium nidus) is a large, leafy fern commonly found on wayside trees in Singapore, particularly the rain tree. The fern, which grows at the base of large branches, has a unique ability to trap water and develop its own store of humus.

Asplenium-antiquum-Victoria.jpg
Description
The bird’s-nest fern is an epiphyte plant that can be found in Asia, Australia, and Africa. It has a stout erect rhizome (stem) that bears a rosette of simple leaves (fronds) to form a “nest”. The stem is usually not visible from the top. Beneath the nest of fronds is a large, spongy mass of roots. The nest traps fallen leaves and other debris, which eventually decompose to become humus. When it rains, large quantities of water are absorbed by the sponge of roots. In this way, the plant is self-sufficient in acquiring its food and water, so much so that it provides a habitat for the growth of other ferns and mosses, and even home for small animals.

plants_hero_birdsnest.jpg

Usage and potential

Food: The bird’s-nest fern is non-poisonous and occasionally eaten by aboriginal tribes in Malaysia.

Medicine: There are several medicinal uses of the bird’s-nest fern by the Malaysian native tribes. Infusion of the fronds is used to ease labour pains. The leaves can also be pounded in water and used as a lotion to treat fever. Two young fronds can be eaten when they are still coiled as a contraceptive, and tea made from fronds can be used for general weakness.

Ferns in the genus Asplenium are referred to as spleenworts—asplenium is the Greek word for spleen, and wort is a general word for plant. At one time, people thought ingesting these ferns medicinally would cure disorders of the spleen.

SIDE DISH
The newly emerging, curled fronds (called crosiers) of Asplenium australasicum are a popular vegetable in Taiwan.

UNIQUE ADDITION
Asplenium goudeyi is only found on Lord Howe Island off the coast of Australia, and it was only recently described for science, in 1996.

IN CELEBRATION
In old Hawaii, the leaves of Asplenium nidus, called ekaha, adorned hula altars and were used in canoe tree-cutting ceremonies.

These Ferns have very few problems, are cheap to purchase and readily available. They're particularly good indoor plants for bathrooms or a frequently used kitchen because these places tend to have a steamy atmosphere.

This is important because a Bird Nest Fern needs some humidity to really thrive indoors, they'll still cope and deal with an average room but for that extra shine and extra large size you'll need to be misting regularly.

Alternatively, if you don't have the time for all that misting, the Bird Nest Fern is an ideal plant to keep in a home terrarium or glass bottle garden, these enclosed spaces create naturally moist and protective environments that many types of plants, including most ferns, will do well in.

Add water to a level just below the tops of the pebbles (if the potting mix in the pots comes in contact with the water, the mix will draw water into the pot, which will cause the mix to become saturated, eventually leading to rot). Refill trays frequently to replace water lost through evaporation. (Our Humiditrays perform the same function without the need for pebbles.)

Temperature: Bird's Nest Fern prefers to be kept at regular room temperature, with nighttime temperatures above 60°F.

Fertilizer: During the growing season (generally April into September) fertilize potted plants once a month using a houseplant formula mixed at 1/2 strength. Withhold fertilizer in fall and winter, when most plants rest.

The Bird's Nest Fern or Asplenium nidus is one of the several popular and beautiful ferns grown as houseplants. The Bird's Nest Fern is easy to care for and suits many homes making it a versatile houseplantFerns like this one can be grown in North facing windows perfectly well and will truly relish the type of light and cooler temperatures these places receive.

In return the Bird's Nest Fern will give you lots of naturally glossy leaves arranged in a circular pattern which resemble a bird's nest (hence the common name for these houseplants).

These Ferns have very few problems, are cheap to purchase and readily available. They're particularly good indoor plants for bathrooms or a frequently used kitchen because these places tend to have a steamy atmosphere.

This is important because a Bird Nest Fern needs some humidity to really thrive indoors, they'll still cope and deal with an average room but for that extra shine and extra large size you'll need to be misting regularly.

Alternatively, if you don't have the time for all that misting, the Bird Nest Fern is an ideal plant to keep in a home terrarium or glass bottle garden, these enclosed spaces create naturally moist and protective environments that many types of plants, including most ferns, will do well in.

The older glass bottle garden are a little old fashioned we'd admit, but as design pieces themselves they have started to become more popular again with interior designers. You may have a larger selection to pick from at car boot sales or in antique shops, but Amazon have a few of the more modern fashion trends to give you some inspiration.

Wow really amazing photography. good article and hard writing
For your post propagation.
Upvote/Resteem

Lovely plant my companion and epiphytic, rosette-formed greenery with sword-like, unified fronds developing from a focal locale. Fronds are smooth-finished, gleaming, light green with a dull dark colored/dark midrib, 60 to 120cms long and 7 to 20cms wide. In regular conditions this plant can be seen high up in criminals of trees yet is for the most part planted at ground level, underneath a shelter of trees or tree greeneries, inclining toward sifted light, to light shade. Develops well nearby Orchids and Bromeliads. Preferences a free, enhanced, natural soil blend, kept as sodden and muggy as would be prudent. Try not to open to coordinate sun, other than early morning sun and dodge ice inclined zones and seaside presentation. In the developing season can be prepared twice week by week with a fluid manure yet don't make a difference to focal point of rosette.

Did not know you could grow those in trees.. very cool

Good green plant . This plant would be full of iron . Becoz green plants are good source of iron and other necessary vitamins minerals . Good blog.

Bird's nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are actually one of two Asplenium species found in cultivation. The other, often called the spleenwort or mother fern (Asplenium bulbiferum), is much harder to grow and looks nothing like its cousin.

These ferns are naturally epiphytic, and in their rainforest homes, they can be found growing high in the crooks of trees. They grow in a series of erect, spoon-shaped, and apple-colored fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to three feet, but this is rare in most indoor situations. These are beautiful plants but require a bit of babying to reach their fullest potential.

Growing Conditions
If you follow the correct growing conditions for your bird's nest fern, it will likely live for many years and always look its best.

Light: Filtered light to light shade. Don't expose to direct sun other than very early morning sun.
Water: These are true jungle plants—keep their compost moist and provide the highest humidity possible.
Temperature: Bird's nest ferns will begin to suffer below about 55 F for prolonged periods. They are best kept between 70 F and 80 F, with high humidity. A warming pad will often help dormant plants.
Soil: Loose, rich organic compost.
Fertilizer: During growing season, fertilizer weekly or biweekly with weak liquid fertilizer. Don't put fertilizer pellets in the central cup.

Propagation
Bird's nest ferns are not easy to propagate and cannot be divided, as other fern species can be. They are usually raised from spore or tissue culture, which means propagation is usually beyond the reach of most home growers.


Repotting
Bird's nest ferns prefer to be slightly underpotted. As naturally epiphytic plants, they are used to growing in a minimum of organic material, and mature plants will elongate above the soil level as the fern grows and sheds lower leaves. The problem, of course, is that large ferns will easily tip over their smaller pots. When repotting, usually every other year, use the next pot size up and refresh the compost.

Origin: Southeast Asia and Tropical Australia

Height: 2 ft (60 cm) in a container indoors

Light: Moderate to bright light. No direct sun, which can scorch the fronds. Give the pot a quarter turn each week for even growth.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist. Water the potting mix, not the center of the rosette, otherwise it can easily rot. Water less in winter. Yellow fronds are often a sign of overwatering.

Humidity: Moderate. If the relative humidity drops below 50%, use a humidity tray or room humidifier to add moisture to the air around the fern. Brown leaf tips are a sign of dry air.

Temperature: Slightly cool to average room temps (60-75°F/16-24°C) suit this tropical fern just fine.

Soil: Peat moss based, such as African violet potting mix.

Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Types of Birds Nest Fern

Native to the temperate regions of eastern Asia, this fern commonly grows on tree trunks, cliffs, and in dark forests. While it is endangered in the wild, it’s commonly available throughout the United States and Europe as an ornamental houseplant. It grows on average 2-3 feet in height/width. Bright green blade-like leaves with a firm center rib and uniform width extend upward from the tight root mass. The edges of the leaves are delightfully crinkled and rippled.

Asplenium australasicum, ‘Bird’s Nest Fern’, ‘Crow’s Nest Fern’

Originates from the New South Wales and Queensland regions of Australia. Asplenium australasium looks as though it would be as much at home on a desert island as it would be in your living room. A distinct central rib juts out from beneath its yellowish-green wide leaves. The rib appears almost like a boat’s keel. As the leaves grow, they uncoil themselves to reach towards the sun. This epiphytic plant isn’t just pretty, though. In Taiwan, it might just be part of dinner, as its leathery young greens are used as a vegetable.

Asplenium nidus, ‘Bird’s-nest Fern’, ‘Nest Fern’

In the wild, Asplenium nidus comes from eastern tropical Africa, northern Australia, and tropical Asia. While it can be either epiphytic or terrestrial, it’s fond of rich organic matter. It often can be found living in bromeliads or on palm trees in its natural environment. It’s also wildly popular as a houseplant, with light to medium green leaves that are reminiscent of banana leaves in appearance.

Asplenium serratum, ‘Bird’s Nest Spleenwort’, ‘Wild Birdsnest Fern’, ‘New World Birdsnest Fern’

Native to the Caribbean, Brazil, and Florida in the United States. The wild birdsnest fern is considered to be endangered in Florida and is rare to see in the wild now. It can live as either a lithophyte or epiphyte, and is happy on both eroded limestone and rotting wood. It also makes a beautiful houseplant, albeit one which may be a bit harder to find initially. Its leaves are typically quite crinkled along the edges, and tend towards medium to dark green in color.

Birds Nest Fern Care
The birds nest plant doesn’t have to be hard to take care of. In fact, it makes a fantastic houseplant because it’s so easy to care for! But it does have some very specific requirements you need to meet for optimal growth.

Light
The birds nest fern prefers to have indirect sunlight or shade conditions. As an indoor plant, it can do surprisingly well with only occasional exposure to natural indirect lighting, or even under artificial light. Outdoors, it prefers shade as its waxy leaves will scorch easily.

It’s also easy to tell if it’s receiving too much light, as the leaves will begin to become pale rather than vibrant midrange green. In addition, the leaves will become more crinkled with the extra light.

Water
These plants are tropical, and so they adore the humidity. However, they don’t like wet feet. If they are grown terrestrially in a potting blend, it has to be extremely well-draining. Regular mistings of this fern will help to keep the humidity levels around it up. Its pot can also be placed on top of a tray holding rocks and a small amount of water to increase the ambient humidity.

However, unlike some other fern varieties, the birds nest fern is forgiving of occasionally dry conditions. It won’t immediately wilt if you are forgetful and miss watering it for a day or two. It won’t necessarily thrive in drier situations, but it also won’t die off rapidly.

When watering, water around the outside edges of the plant, rather than from overhead. If it is watered from the top, too much water can collect in the central part of the plant and create a risk for blight.

Soil

As the birds nest fern is typically epiphytic (grows on wood) or lithophytic (grows on rock), it can exist without standard soil blends at all. You can find a particularly nice chunk of an old rotting log, or a board to hang on the wall, and use it for dramatic effect.

However, it can also be grown in a very well-drained potting soil. A blend that is designed for orchids or bromeliads works perfectly, or you can use a blend which is heavy in humus or peat moss and lots of perlite. The fern soil should be moist but not wet at all times.

Many gardeners who are attempting to grow birds nest fern outdoors in a shady environment find that it just isn’t humid enough around their plant. In situations like that, it’s good to pile a thick layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help keep up the humidity at its center.

Fertilizer
With birds nest fern, too much fertilizer is more dangerous than not enough. An overabundance of fertilizer will cause the leaves to take on a brownish or yellowish cast along the edges. It may also deform the leaf shape. But it does need some food nonetheless. Fertilize during the spring or summer months only, and only a few times. Two to three times during the year will suffice. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer that’s diluted to half strength or weaker, and apply it to the soil or base of the plant rather than the leaves.

Propagation
Unlike most ferns, birds nest fern is quite difficult to propagate for the average home gardener. It commonly propagates from spores in the wild. In commercial settings, it’s most commonly propagated by tissue culture. Because of that, it’s best to purchase your fern from a home and garden center than to try to propagate your own.

If you still would like to try reproducing your own birds nest fern, you can try to harvest spores. The spores look like little lines of brownish, fuzzy spots along the underside of some of the leaves. When these spores are fat and look quite fuzzy, trim off the leaf they’re on. Carefully place it into a paper bag. Over the next few days, the spores should collect in the bottom of the bag.

Once you have your spores, prepare a pot of sphagnum moss. Scatter the spores across the top surface, leaving them uncovered. Place your pot of moss and spores in a dish of water and allow the water to seep upwards through the moss from the bottom. Keep the spores moist by covering the pot with a plastic bag or plastic wrap, or hand-mist the top daily. Keep the pot at temperatures between 70-80 degrees in a shaded location.

The spores should start to germinate in 2-3 weeks, and if the pot is covered with plastic wrap or a bag, you should be able to remove it sometime between 4-6 weeks after starting the spores.

Repotting
Since the birds nest fern is naturally epiphytic, its root mass doesn’t grow large enough for it to require repotting to prevent root constriction. However, it can become unstable as it becomes larger, and will need a larger base to attach itself to. Generally, it’s best to repot every 2-3 years or when it appears to become unbalanced on its current platform. If you have to repot fern plants, use an appropriate potting soil and a pot that provides side stability for the long fronds.

If you have your fern attached to a log or board, keep a watchful eye on it. Be ready to replace the wood with something larger when it seems to be needed. Take extreme caution when loosening its grip on its support wood, very gently prying the root mass away from its old wood. If necessary, you can trim some roots, which may encourage new root growth. Then train your plant to its new wood by helping it grasp onto the wood, spreading out the root mass. It may require temporary support while it learns how to hold on to its new home.

Pruning
The birds nest fern often doesn’t need much in the way of pruning, as it tends to maintain its own shape and size. However, if you wish to trim it back, you can remove leaves from the outside of the plant down at the plant’s base. This is usually sufficient. You can also trim leaves which are less visually-appealing as necessary.

Problems
Most problems with growing birds nest fern come from pests, but there are a few other issues. Here’s a list of the most common difficulties and how to fix them.

Growing Problems
The worst two growing problems for most fern growers are overfertilization and watering it incorrectly.

Overfertilization is something to particularly avoid. This can cause yellowing or browning of the leaves, spotting, or leaf deformation. Be sure to avoid giving your bird’s-nest fern too much fertilizer!

If watered from the top, blight can be a major issue. It’s better to water your plant around its base, being sure that water does not pool there and that the soil drains easily. In ideal conditions, the soil will be moist but not soggy at all times.

If your fern’s leaves are extremely flat, it may not be receiving enough light, and might appreciate a little extra indirect sun occasionally. If its leaves are too crinkled, it’s getting too much light and needs more shade. Adjust the lighting conditions so the fern is to your preference.

Diseases
The most common disease for birds nest fern is bacterial blight. In this condition, water-soaked, translucent small spots begin to form on the leaves. These rapidly enlarge, turning reddish-purple around the edges, and can spread up along the leaf veins. If you begin to see signs of this sort of damage, quickly trim off the damaged leaves at their base in an attempt to prevent further spread.

If it spreads even after you’ve trimmed the damaged leaves, most bactericides are ineffective. You can certainly try them anyhow to attempt to combat the bacteria. However, if trimming off the damage doesn’t work, your plant may need to be destroyed to prevent further bacterial spread. Do not use that soil for plants unless it has been thoroughly sterilized.

Pests
Foliar nematodes can be a major issue for ferns in contact with soil, and it looks an awful lot like bacterial blight initially. Small, water-soaked translucent spots will form on the leaves. However, instead of turning reddish-purple as they would with blight, these go brown to black. Often, plants which are showing signs of nematode damage need to be destroyed, and the soil will need to be sterilized to eliminate the nematodes. Before throwing out the plant, you may want to try applying beneficial nematodes and see if they will help eradicate the pest nematodes. They can also help sterilize the soil.

Caterpillars such as cutworms can be a problem, causing munching along the outside of fronds. If you discover caterpillar damage, apply Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) in either spray or powder form to all leaf surfaces, top and bottom. I like Monterey BT for this purpose, but Garden Dust also works quite well.

Another pest that can become an issue is the fungus gnat. The larvae eat lower parts of the plants and the root, and the adults become a flying nuisance while leaving superfine webbing on the plant surfaces. You can combat these using beneficial nematodes to find and consume the larvae, and use neem oil on the foliage to deter the adults from landing around the fern to lay their eggs.

Mealybugs can create cottony masses on leaves and roots. These pests will cause your plant’s growth to become stunted. You can deal with these rapidly by using a product such as Safer Soap or Safer Brand Yard & Garden Spray. Either option will kill the mealybugs off.

Scale insects will make your plants appear stunted. These insects feed on the stems and leaves of your birds nest ferns, and can sometimes look like spores, and other times be difficult to see at all. Use products like Safer Soap or Safer Brand Yard & Garden Spray to combat these pests, too.

Slugs are yet another problem pest for birds nest ferns. These cause feeding damage on the leaves which is pretty obvious, and a quick inspection on the underside of the leaves will reveal them. You can hand-pick them off and dispose of them. Use a product such as Garden Safe Slug & Snail Bait around the base of your plants to kill others who might go after your ferns.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: My birds nest fern is sticky. Help?
A: If it’s sticky, that’s likely something called honeydew, which is a result of having a scale infestation. Scale insects may be hard to spot, but that stickiness is a sure sign that they’re present. Use insecticidal soaps or pyrethrin sprays to combat these pests, such as the suggestions I gave in the pest segment.

Q: How can I attach my birds nest fern to an upright rock or board?
A: This process can be fairly complicated, especially if you’re trying to convince it to grow on a surface you plan to hang or set upright. However, products such as Liquid Nails have been used in the past to attach bromeliads to boards. You will need to carefully trim away part of the plant to create a flat surface in the root mass.

Then, use just enough of the glue to help anchor the center of the root mass to the board or rock so it doesn’t slide. Too much glue will prevent the roots from taking in nutrients from the surface you want the plant to live on. Carefully drape the rest of the roots around the board/rock and leave it leaning against the wall for a few days, misting it regularly, to allow the roots to take hold. Do not hang your board or rock until the plant has fully grabbed on and become secure.

So, are you going to try to grow this rainforest delight? It’s a stunningly beautiful houseplant, and it can really liven up your living space. I’m particularly fond of the crow’s nest fern myself! Tell everyone your favorite in the comments below.

Asplenium australasicum - bird's nest fern

A favorite among Australian gardeners, ideal in hanging baskets, containers and set within tree branches for a cascading effect.

The bird’s-nest fern (Asplenium nidus) is a large, leafy fern commonly found on wayside trees in Singapore, particularly the rain tree.1 The fern, which grows at the base of large branches, has a unique ability to trap water and develop its own store of humus.


Description
The bird’s-nest fern is an epiphyte plant that can be found in Asia, Australia, and Africa.2 It has a stout erect rhizome (stem) that bears a rosette of simple leaves (fronds) to form a “nest”. The stem is usually not visible from the top. Beneath the nest of fronds is a large, spongy mass of roots.

The nest traps fallen leaves and other debris, which eventually decompose to become humus. When it rains, large quantities of water are absorbed by the sponge of roots.3 In this way, the plant is self-sufficient in acquiring its food and water, so much so that it provides a habitat for the growth of other ferns and mosses, and even home for small animals.4


The fronds can grow to a length of more than a metre and a width of about 20 cm, with the whole plant extending about two metres across.5 The leaves are in a shiny light-green colour, with a smooth, sometimes wavy-edged, blade as well as a prominent black midrib. The sporangia – sacs that produce spores for reproduction – are found on the underside of the fronds in parallel rows inclined at 45 deg to the midrib. The fern produces plentiful spores that are dispersed by wind.

In some Malay rural areas, the plant is believed to have supernatural properties, or the home of the langsuir, a mythical female banshee hostile to pregnant women.

When most people think of ferns, they think of feathery, airy fronds, but not all ferns actually look like this. The bird’s nest fern is an example of a fern that defies our preconceived ideas of what a fern should look like. Even better is the fact that a bird’s nest fern plant makes an excellent low light houseplant. About the Bird’s Nest Fern Plant The bird’s nest fern plant gets its name from the fact that the center of the plant resembles a bird’s nest. It is also occasionally called a crow’s nest fern. Bird’s nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are identified by their flat, wavy or crinkly fronds. Their appearance can bring to mind a seaweed plant growing on dry land. Bird’s nest fern is an epiphytic fern, which means in the wild it typically grows on other things, like tree trunks or buildings. When you buy it as a houseplant, it will be planted in a container, but it can be affixed to planks and hung on a wall much like staghorn ferns. How to Grow Bird’s Nest Fern 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. Keep in mind that too much light or direct light will cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die. Care for a Bird’s Nest Fern In addition to light, another important aspect of bird’s nest fern care is its watering. Under ideal circumstances, all ferns would like to have consistently moist, but not wet, soil. However, part of the reason that bird’s nest fern makes an ideal houseplant is that it will tolerate soil that dries out from time to time. Furthermore, this plant does not require the same level of humidity that many other kinds of ferns need, making the care for a bird’s nest fern far more forgiving to the occasionally forgetful houseplant owner than other ferns. Fertilizer should only be given to the plant two to three times a year. Even then, the fertilizer should only be applied at half strength and should only be given during the spring and summer months. Too much fertilizer will cause deformed leaves with brown or yellow spots or edges. Now that you know more about how to grow bird’s nest fern and how easy these plants are to grow, try giving them a place in your home.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Your Bird’s Nest Fern will do best in medium to low light. The more light it receives, the more the leaves will crinkle and the less light, the flatter the leaves will be. Keep in mind, too much light or direct sunlight will cause the fronds on the fern to yellow and die.

WATER REQUIREMENTS
Under ideal circumstances, all ferns would like to have constantly moist, but not wet soil. However, the Bird’s Nest Fern will tolerate soil that dries out from time to time.

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
This plant does not require the same level of humidity that many other kinds of ferns need.

How to Grow Bird's Nest Ferns

image.png

Bird's nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are actually one of two Asplenium species found in cultivation. The other, often called the spleenwort or mother fern (Asplenium bulbiferum), is much harder to grow and looks nothing like its cousin. These ferns are naturally epiphytic, and in their rainforest homes, they can be found growing high in the crooks of trees. They grow in a series of erect, spoon-shaped, and apple-colored fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to three feet, but this is rare in most indoor situations.

images (3).jpeg

Growing Conditions
If you follow the correct growing conditions for your bird's nest fern, it will likely live for many years and always look its best.

Light: Filtered light to light shade. Don't expose to direct sun other than very early morning sun.
Water: These are true jungle plants—keep their compost moist and provide the highest humidity possible.
Temperature: Bird's nest ferns will begin to suffer below about 55 F for prolonged periods. They are best kept between 70 F and 80 F, with high humidity. A warming pad will often help dormant plants.
Soil: Loose, rich organic compost.
Fertilizer: During growing season, fertilizer weekly or biweekly with weak liquid fertilizer. Don't put fertilizer pellets in the central cup.

BIRDS NEST FERN
images (2).jpeg

The Asplenium nidus is an epiphytic species known as the Bird's nest fern that roots itself to trees in it's natural habitat and warmer climates.

From the range of ferns that can be grown indoors this plant has larger leaflets than most and gives that large full leaf foliage plant appearance.

image.png
Description
Now I spend most of my time in Thailand I get to find all sorts of great indoor plants growing in the wild and within gardens. This A.nidus is growing in my neighbors garden attached to the tree in the picture (right of page).

Although a native to tropical regions - the A.nidus that roots itself on trees has adapted very well to growing in temperate regions as a house plant.

Two reasons it grows well under and attached to trees is because it receives the moisture (humidity) it requires and shade by taking cover from direct sunlight. Indoors we must also provide these humidity levels and provide enough light without direct sunlight to enable the plant to grow well and remain healthy.

Bird Nest Fern
Botanical Name: Asplenium nidus

3abc3f4d2bdcb53786cd86e1aa74ccea.jpg

Bird Nest Fern is one of the easiest types of ferns to grow. This tropical native is fast-growing and will live for many years with good care.

In its natural habitat, it grows as an epiphyte (a plant that grows on trees) in the warm, moist, tropical rain forests. Despite its tropical beginnings, it adapts well to being a house plant. Place your potted fern where it is out of direct sun and away from drafts, which can scorch the fronds. Provide humidity and you'll keep it healthy.

Birds-Nest-Fern-Crispy-Wave-LPOBIRNCW.jpg

3abc3f4d2bdcb53786cd86e1aa74ccea.jpg

This unique fern grows in the form of a deep rosette of large, shiny, spear-shaped fronds. New fronds unfurl from the center of the plant. Its fronds are fragile, so I'd put this fern where passersby won't brush up against it.

images (2).jpeg

As Bird Nest Fern ages, the oldest, outer fronds will turn brown. This is normal. You can cut them off at the base to keep the plant looking neat.

Those upright fronds tend to be dust-catchers. Keep the broad, shiny fronds dust-free by spraying with water and gently wiping them with a damp cloth. Never use leafshine products on ferns because it can severely damage their delicate fronds.

Repot young plants in spring, every couple years or when the roots fill the pot. If you find that the roots are attached to the pot, run a knife around the inside to loosen them before you can remove the rootball. You may need to break the pot to remove it. It's a good idea to use a container with drainage holes to avoid soggy soil. Take care not to pack down the potting mix; this fern likes a loose mixture.

The Bird’s Nest fern is native to the rain forests of Asia, Africa, and Australia which explains why high humidity is essential for it to thrive. This fern has long, erect, leathery, apple-green fronds that never split like those of a Kimberly Queen fern or a Maidenhair fern. The wide rippled leaves of a Bird’s Nest fern emerge from a central rosette or crown that looks like a fuzzy brown funnel. When the new fronds first emerge, they resemble little bird eggs which is why we call it a Bird’s Nest fern. It’s important to never get water on the crown or it will develop plant diseases. The tongue shaped fronds of a Bird’s Nest fern are fragile so put it where it can’t be bumped. The unique attractive Bird’s Nest fern requires quite a bit of care and is not a good plant for beginners.

How do you care for a bird nest fern?

victoria.jpg

To care for Asplenium nidus houseplants, place in an area of the home with indirect or shady light. Asplenium nidus prefer evenly moist surroundings. Watering the soil often during growth and housing the plant in a moderately humid area will help to maintain a healthy environment during care for Bird's Nest Fern.

Bird Nest Fern Care Tips

Origin: Southeast Asia and Tropical Australia

Height: 2 ft (60 cm) in a container indoors

Light: Moderate to bright light. No direct sun, which can scorch the fronds. Give the pot a quarter turn each week for even growth.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist. Water the potting mix, not the center of the rosette, otherwise it can easily rot. Water less in winter. Yellow fronds are often a sign of overwatering.

Humidity: Moderate. If the relative humidity drops below 50%, use a humidity tray or room humidifier to add moisture to the air around the fern. Brown leaf tips are a sign of dry air.

Temperature: Slightly cool to average room temps (60-75°F/16-24°C) suit this tropical fern just fine.

Soil: Peat moss based, such as African violet potting mix.

Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Propagation: This fern is propagated by spores, which is difficult to do for the home grower.

Is The Bird's Nest Fern Poisonous?
No, this fern isn't toxic to people, cats or dogs.

Anything else?
Ferns in general are quite sensitive to chemicals so you must avoid leaf shine products to prevent issues. The leaves are naturally glossy anyway, but of course if they start to dull from dust you can just pop the plant under a warm shower for a minute to wash the grime away.


Bird Nest Fern Problems
Why are there are dark brown spots on the fronds / leaves?

In most cases these spots are actually spores, which are basically seeds. It's perfectly normal and indicates you've a mature and healthy plant, just leave them as they are.

Make sure however the brown spots aren't Scale Insects which can look awfully similar. Spores will be regularly spaced and only appear on older Bird Nest Ferns, whereas Scale will have a random pattern and can afflict a plant at any age. If you do have a Scale Insect problem get rid of them quickly to prevent them from spreading to other houseplants. The link above will help you get to grips with doing this.

Why are there brown tips on the leaves on my bird's nest fern?

In most cases this is a result of dry air, or allowing the soil to dry out too much before re watering. On occasion it can also be an indication you're overwatering. Remember that the soil should be moist for much of the time, not really dry or really wet.

Why are the leaves on my bird's nest fern turning yellow?

If the yellowing starts at the ends of the fronds this is probably normal aging. If the yellow is starting from the base of the fronds then the temperature is likely on the high side, find a cooler place in your home for it to live. Other causes could be from using hard cold water, exposure to draughts, or chemicals.

When most people think of ferns, they think of feathery, airy fronds, but not all ferns actually look like this. The bird’s nest fern is an example of a fern that defies our preconceived ideas of what a fern should look like. Even better is the fact that a bird’s nest fern plant makes an excellent low light houseplant. About the Bird’s Nest Fern Plant The bird’s nest fern plant gets its name from the fact that the center of the plant resembles a bird’s nest. It is also occasionally called a crow’s nest fern. Bird’s nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are identified by their flat, wavy or crinkly fronds. Their appearance can bring to mind a seaweed plant growing on dry land. Bird’s nest fern is an epiphytic fern, which means in the wild it typically grows on other things, like tree trunks or buildings. When you buy it as a houseplant, it will be planted in a container, but it can be affixed to planks and hung on a wall much like staghorn ferns.

How to Grow Bird’s Nest Fern 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. Keep in mind that too much light or direct light will cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die. Care for a Bird’s Nest Fern In addition to light, another important aspect of bird’s nest fern care is its watering. Under ideal circumstances, all ferns would like to have consistently moist, but not wet, soil. However, part of the reason that bird’s nest fern makes an ideal houseplant is that it will tolerate soil that dries out from time to time. Furthermore, this plant does not require the same level of humidity that many other kinds of ferns need, making the care for a bird’s nest fern far more forgiving to the occasionally forgetful houseplant owner than other ferns. Fertilizer should only be given to the plant two to three times a year. Even then, the fertilizer should only be applied at half strength and should only be given during the spring and summer months. Too much fertilizer will cause deformed leaves with brown or yellow spots or edges. Now that you know more about how to grow bird’s nest fern and how easy these plants are to grow, try giving them a place in your home. They make a wonderful and green addition to the less brightly lit rooms in your home.

Asplenium nidus is an epiphytic species of fern in the family Aspleniaceae, native to tropical southeastern Asia, eastern Australia, Hawaii,[3] Polynesia,[citation needed] Christmas Island,[citation needed] India,[4] and eastern Africa. It is known by the common names bird's-nest fern[1][5] (a name shared by other aspleniums) or simply nest fern.

3abc3f4d2bdcb53786cd86e1aa74ccea.jpg

A 2015 molecular study found that Asplenium nidus is polyphyletic, meaning that some populations were not closely related to others—A. nidus from Madagascar, Vanuatu and New Guinea were more closely related to other species than each other. Hence a revision with sampling of the species across its range was required to delineate the taxon and identify cryptic species.[6]

Asplenium-nidus-Cristatum.jpg

Description Edit
Asplenium nidus forms large simple fronds visually similar to banana leaves, with the fronds growing to 50–150 centimetres (20–59 in) long and 10–20 centimetres (3.9–7.9 in) broad. They are light green, often crinkled, with a black midrib, and exhibit circinate vernation. Spores develop in sori on the underside of the fronds. These sori form long rows extending out from the midrib on the back of the outer part of the lamina (frond). The fronds roll back as they brown and create a massive leaf nest in the branches and trunks of trees.

Bird Nest Fern
Botanical Name: Asplenium nidus

Bird Nest Fern is one of the easiest types of ferns to grow. This tropical native is fast-growing and will live for many years with good care.

In its natural habitat, it grows as an epiphyte (a plant that grows on trees) in the warm, moist, tropical rain forests. Despite its tropical beginnings, it adapts well to being a house plant. Place your potted fern where it is out of direct sun and away from drafts, which can scorch the fronds. Provide humidity and you'll keep it healthy.

As Bird Nest Fern ages, the oldest, outer fronds will turn brown. This is normal. You can cut them off at the base to keep the plant looking neat.

Those upright fronds tend to be dust-catchers. Keep the broad, shiny fronds dust-free by spraying with water and gently wiping them with a damp cloth. Never use leafshine products on ferns because it can severely damage their delicate fronds.

Repot young plants in spring, every couple years or when the roots fill the pot. If you find that the roots are attached to the pot, run a knife around the inside to loosen them before you can remove the rootball. You may need to break the pot to remove it. It's a good idea to use a container with drainage holes to avoid soggy soil. Take care not to pack down the potting mix; this fern likes a loose mixture.

This fern's problems are few. Watch for scale insects, that look like small, brown discs on fronds. If you find an invasion of these pests, spray with soapy water followed by clean water. Don't use insecticides on ferns because they are easily damaged by chemicals.

Bird Nest Fern Care Guide

It's time to repot when the thin roots completely fill the existing pot, once this has happened it's time to move it on into a slightly larger container. Bird's Nest Ferns do well in quite small pots like this oneIf you don't, growth will stall before eventually stopping completely.

As a rule of thumb a young Bird Nest Fern plant will need to be repotted once every year until it reaches a good size, after which you will only need to repot perhaps once every couple of years.

Bear in mind that even large plants can still do well in smaller pots (see picture) so there is no need to repot into a significantly bigger pot each time. Just be prepared to water more often as a smaller container will store less moisture.

When you're getting your hands dirty with repotting your fern, you don't need to use or do anything particularly fancy. Standard potting soil is fine and if the roots are very compacted you might want to gently loosen them a little with your fingers.

When you're packing everything into the new pot, it's important that the crown is not buried - It must sit at the same level it sat at in the previous pot.

Propagation
Ferns, including the Asplenium, will form spores in time which can be used to propagate new plants. Although we will give most things a try, propagating ferns using this method is not one of them. It's really difficult and you do need special equipment to pull it off successfully. So instead we'd rather spend a little money (because they're normally cheap plants anyway) and buy new ones if we want more.

Speed of Growth
Providing you are caring for your Bird's Nest Fern correctly, growth will be quite rapid and regular during the growing seasons, new leaves will constantly emerge from the central "nest". New fronds emerging from the centre of this Birds Nest FernA word of caution however - you must not handle the delicate young fronds as they're emerging because of how fragile they are. New fronds have a high chance of becoming damaged and deformed if you touch them, so try not to.

Growth will be slow if the roots have no space to grow into or when the temperature is very cold.

Height / Spread
A max height of 120cm / 4ft and a spread of 90cm / 3ft can be attained after many years but only in an environment that is very humid. Half these size estimates in a normal room.

Flowers
Does the Bird's Nest Fern have flowers? The answer to this is no it doesn't. Instead this houseplant is all about the lush tropical and tranquil looking foliage.

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71TbtTJYYtL.SX425.jpg

Temperature: Room temperatures between 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) are ideal, and no lower than 55ºF (13ºC).
Light: Most books and guides will agree that bright light without direct sunlight should be provided. However, providing some direct sunlight is great for the Bird's nest fern to grow well, but you need to only provide some morning or a small amount of pre-sunset. The fronds can become pale or have scorch marks on them if the sun is too hot. During the winter the sun is much less harmful to the plant.

Watering: This is a species that loves it's soil to remain moist at all times, but not soggy. Water around the edge of the center rosette to avoid the water becoming stagnant in the center, which may cause rot.
Soil: A peat based potting mix is required. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite (maybe a little less) is one mixture that will be fine. A peat based mixture with organic material is also good.
Fertilizer: From April - September feed the plant with a weak diluted fertilizer every 2 weeks to encourage new growth and healthy looking leaves.

Re-Potting: The Asplenium nidus does not need a pot change very often because it's roots are very small. Once every 2 years is advised for a mature species and once a year while it's young. These do not generally have a problem with becoming root bound, but have more of an issue with staying stable in the pot - this is because the roots are small and they're usually attached to a tree making their own mount. Watch out to see if the plant is becoming unstable and move to a larger pot if it is.
Humidity: Humidity may need to be improved if it becomes low and the plant is showing signs of being affected by dry air. You can improve the humidity by standing the plant in a humidity tray, a tray of peat moss or use an electronic humidifier.

Propagation: These are propagated by spore sowing which is very difficult for the average indoor grower to carry out. Many ferns can be propagated by division, not this species though.

Now I spend most of my time in Thailand I get to find all sorts of great indoor plants growing in the wild and within gardens. This A.nidus is growing in my neighbors garden attached to the tree in the picture (right of page).
a.nidus.jpg
Although a native to tropical regions - the A.nidus that roots itself on trees has adapted very well to growing in temperate regions as a house plant.

Two reasons it grows well under and attached to trees is because it receives the moisture (humidity) it requires and shade by taking cover from direct sunlight. Indoors we must also provide these humidity levels and provide enough light without direct sunlight to enable the plant to grow well and remain healthy.
birds-nest-fern.jpg
How it looks: Ferns are quite an interesting group of plants to grow indoors because of the various types of fronds they display, so you could have three ferns in one room from the same class and genera that look kind of unrelated.
plants_hero_birdsnest.jpg
The Bird's nest differs from many in appearance because of it's spear like shaped leaves rather than feather or palm like fronds. The leaves (have a brown mid-rib and wavy margin) grow up to about 2ft long from a rosette of fronds where new leaves appear when the plant is producing new growth.

Displaying: While a plant is young and small it can be placed anywhere in a home or office with the correct conditions provided (light, etc.). Once it matures though, you'll need to provide enough space for the rosette of fronds to spread out over 2ft each side. A conservatory is best suited or a fairly large room once it does mature.

Care level: The two main conditions to provide well is enough humidity and to protect the leaves from direct sunlight (they become scorched), although some sunlight is ideal for them. If a person has sufficient living space and can follow the straight forward care instructions below, anyone can grow and maintain them.

How to Grow Bird's Nest Ferns

Bird's nest ferns (Asplenium nidus) are actually one of two Asplenium species found in cultivation. The other, often called the spleenwort or mother fern (Asplenium bulbiferum), is much harder to grow and looks nothing like its cousin. These ferns are naturally epiphytic, and in their rainforest homes, they can be found growing high in the crooks of trees. They grow in a series of erect, spoon-shaped, and apple-colored fronds that rise from a central rosette. Healthy plants can have fronds up to three feet, but this is rare in most indoor situations. These are beautiful plants but require a bit of babying to reach their fullest potential.


Growing Conditions
If you follow the correct growing conditions for your bird's nest fern, it will likely live for many years and always look its best.

Light: Filtered light to light shade. Don't expose to direct sun other than very early morning sun.
Water: These are true jungle plants—keep their compost moist and provide the highest humidity possible.
Temperature: Bird's nest ferns will begin to suffer below about 55 F for prolonged periods. They are best kept between 70 F and 80 F, with high humidity. A warming pad will often help dormant plants.
Soil: Loose, rich organic compost.
Fertilizer: During growing season, fertilizer weekly or biweekly with weak liquid fertilizer. Don't put fertilizer pellets in the central cup.
Propagation
Bird's nest ferns are not easy to propagate and cannot be divided, as other fern species can be. They are usually raised from spore or tissue culture, which means propagation is usually beyond the reach of most home growers.

Repotting
Bird's nest ferns prefer to be slightly underpotted. As naturally epiphytic plants, they are used to growing in a minimum of organic material, and mature plants will elongate above the soil level as the fern grows and sheds lower leaves. The problem, of course, is that large ferns will easily tip over their smaller pots. When repotting, usually every other year, use the next pot size up and refresh the compost.

Varieties
Some varietals of bird's nest fern have been developed, usually with crinkled or frilly leaf margins. Mother fern (also called spleenwort) is sometimes available at the nursery or online, but this is a much more difficult fern to grow indoors than bird's nest fern.

Grower's Tips
Bird's nest ferns are beautiful, and many conservatories and greenhouses boast impressively large specimens. They are a natural to group with orchids, bromeliads, and other rainforest plants in a display. The key to a healthy bird's nest fern is providing enough warmth and moisture. Given these two conditions, the ferns can withstand higher light levels. One of the best places to put a bird's nest fern is on a shower ledge or the wide edges of a luxury bathtub in a bathroom near a window, where it will get optimal humidity and warmth, along with sufficient light.

Bird's nest fern has long, lance shaped, bright green fronds that unroll from a central mass of hairlike black-brown fibers that suggest a bird's nest. Emanating erect and stiff as they do from a central point, the foliage grows in a funnel shape, and this too looks like a bird's nest. The fronds are entire; that is to say they are without teeth, lobes or pinnae.


Spore capsules are produced in straight lines on the undersides of some fronds. Under ideal growing conditions, the fronds can reach 5 ft (1.5 m) in length. There are several named cultivars available. 'Fibriantum' has fronds that are contorted and have slightly jagged edges. According to some authorities, the bird's nest ferns available in commerce actually include more than just this one species.

Location
Asplenium nidus occurs in tropical regions throughout the Old World. Ferns in general reproduce and spread with tiny, often wind-borne, spores and it is not unusual for some to have very large geographic distributions.

Culture
Bird's nest fern needs enough space around it so that the fronds do not touch anything or they will be damaged. Scale insects sometimes attack this fern and these should be taken off by hand. Chemical insecticides are toxic to Asplenium ferns and should never be used on them.

In the wild, bird's nest fern is an epiphyte, growing on trees deep in the tropical rain forest. The nest shaped funnel of fronds collects rainwater and nutrient-bearing dust from the air, like a bromeliad. In cultivation, bird's nest fern is probably the easiest fern to maintain indoors. It grows slowly and is the ideal house plant, thriving in low light and low humidity where few plants could even survive. The graceful arching fronds should be given enough room so they do not touch any objects, including your hands!
