Plant Care Tips
LIGHT: Birds nest ferns prefer shady positions in protected light, grouped with other shade-loving ferns and plants to create a tropical feel.
WATER: The soil should be kept moist but not wet and needs to be well-draining.
GROWTH HABIT: As naturally epiphytic plants, they do not require a lot of soil and have shrubby arching fronds. Mature plants can grow quite large and can easily tip pots over, so pick an oversized pot to make a statement piece of your Birds Nest Fern.
SIZE: Can grow to 1 meter + Long
