BIRDSNEST FERN – Asplenium nidus

A bright and durable fern; the shiny fronds grow up to 3 feet long.

TEMPERATURE: Average to cool conditions; minimum at night 50-55 degrees.

LIGHT: Shade from direct sun; good in unbroken north light all year. Needs humid air too prevent leaf edges from turning brown.

WATERING: Never allow soil to dry out, though do not saturate it. Where cooler and drier atmosphere prevails in winter when growth is slower, water only enough to prevent wilting.

FERTILIZE: Apply at half the recommended strenght every 4-6 months.
