Quantity Available: 23

Asplenium nidus - Bird's Nest Fern is part of the Aspleniaceae family and is native to southeast Asia. This interesting plant does not have typical fern fonds, but instead has solid tongue-shaped fronds that come up from a central rosette. Asplenium nidus - Bird's Nest Fern can grow large and reach up to 24"-36" high at maturity. It is tropical evergreen fern that prefers partial shade and constantly wet soil. Do not let dry out between watering. This fern enjoys being slightly root bound.

 

USDA Hardiness Zones 10-11

 

 

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Asplenium nidus - Bird's Nest Fern will do well as a potted houseplant or on the patio. Due to its large size, it is not recommended as a terrarium or container garden plant.

 

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

 

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

This fern is only recommended for larger vivariums due to it's size, and should be placed towards the back.  It will appreciate the constantly moist soil and humidity that a vivarium provides.  In an animal terrarium, just be sure to keep the soil evenly moist so that it doesn’t dry out.  Since it is so large growing, it will likely need to be trimmed back with age or removed entirely. 

 

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.
