This easily grown plant can go outdoors to a shady spot in the summer too, but do not forget to bring it back indoors before the first frosts!

  • Care
  • The Bird's Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus 'Crispy Wave') is a plant native to tropical forests and really does not like direct sunlight! The Asplenium nidus 'Crispy Wave' likes to be kept humid so we recommend spraying the leaves regularly with rainwater. If the air is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry and curl. This plant does not like to strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on dry or liquid fertiliser packets for green plant houseplants.

    Water less in the winter keeping the plant slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.
