The Birds Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus) is an attractive, low-maintenance plant, known for its lush, vibrant foliage. Native to tropical regions, this plant is well-suited to both indoor and outdoor cultivation. In this guide, we'll discuss information about the Birds Nest Fern, its plantation, growing requirements, care tips, and the benefits it offers.

Plant Information

  • Scientific name: Asplenium nidus
  • Common names: Birds Nest Fern, Nest Fern, Crispy Wave
  • Plant type: Fern, evergreen perennial
  • Native habitat: Tropical regions, especially Southeast Asia and Australia
  • USDA Hardiness Zones: 10-12
  • Sunlight: Indirect, moderate light
  • Soil: Well-draining, rich in organic matter
  • Water: Keep evenly moist
  • Fertilizer: Balanced, water-soluble, diluted to half-strength


  1. Location: Choose a location that receives indirect sunlight, as direct sun can scorch the leaves. Ideal locations include shaded gardens, patios, or indoor spaces with bright, filtered light.

  2. Soil: Birds Nest Ferns thrive in well-draining soil with plenty of organic matter. A mix of equal parts peat moss, coco coir, and perlite works well.

  3. Planting: Plant the fern in a container or garden bed, ensuring the crown (the central growing point) is slightly above the soil surface. Space plants 18-24 inches apart.

Growing and Maintenance

  1. Watering: Maintain consistent moisture, but avoid overwatering. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. In winter, reduce watering frequency.

  2. Fertilizing: Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to half-strength. Avoid fertilizing during winter.

  3. Humidity: Birds Nest Ferns prefer humidity levels of 50% or higher. To increase humidity, place the pot on a tray with pebbles and water, or use a humidifier.

  4. Pruning: Remove dead or damaged fronds as needed to maintain the plant's appearance.

  5. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, or when the roots outgrow the container. Choose a pot 1-2 inches larger in diameter.


  1. Air purification: Birds Nest Ferns are effective at removing indoor air pollutants, such as formaldehyde and benzene.

  2. Aesthetic appeal: Their attractive, wavy fronds add a unique touch of greenery to any space, indoors or outdoors.

  3. Low maintenance: These ferns are relatively easy to care for, making them a popular choice for both beginner and experienced plant enthusiasts.

  4. Versatility: They can be grown in various settings, including as houseplants, in terrariums, or as part of a shaded garden.

  5. Non-toxic: Birds Nest Ferns are non-toxic to pets and humans, making them a safe option for households with children and animals.
