Asplenium nidus 'Wavy Birdsnest Fern'


Asplenium nidus, or 'Wavy Birdsnest Fern', is an easy-care fern adaptable to a variety of lighting conditions. These pet-safe plants are an excellent choice when seeking a sculptural, low maintenance plant that will quickly adapt and look right at home in any space.


Native to East Africa, Asia, and Australia.


Wavy Birdsnest Ferns enjoy bright indirect light and can adapt to a couple hours of direct sunlight. A few hours of morning sun is ideal. In the wild, these plants are epiphytes, meaning they grow on tree limbs and for that reason receive a lot of dappled light.


Birdsnest Ferns, like most other ferns, like moisture. Soil should remain evenly moist, but never soggy or waterlogged. Give the soil a thorough watering once soil is dry about 25% deep.

Tula's Tip

These plants are slow growers. Repotting should only be done once every two to three years and should always be done with great care to protect their delicate root systems. Fertilize: Birdsnest Ferns are light feeders and do not require much fertilization. Feed them once a month using a weak, balanced fertilizer during the spring and summer only.


4" wide Nursery pot. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
