Bird’s Nest Fern (Asplenium Nidus)

Botanical Name: Asplenium Nidus

Also Known as:

  • Nest Fern
  • Crispy Wave

Asplenium Nidus is a perennial fern plant.

Asplenium Nidus removes harmful particles from the air such as formalde and produces oxygen more effectively than most houseplants.

Asplenium Nidus is an exceptional air-purifying plant.


  • Small: 12-15 cm
  • Large: 20-25 cm

Asplenium Nidus is typically found in palm trees. Given the right indoor environment, they will thrive and make for a wonderfully unique houseplant.

Their fronds are light green, often crinkled or wavy, and rise from a central rosette. The rosette is fuzzy where the emerging fronds resemble bird’s eggs – hence the common name.

Temperature: Room temperatures between 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) are ideal, and no lower than 55ºF (13ºC).

Light: 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. 

Watering: This is a species that loves its 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.

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.

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
