Asplenium Australasicum (Birds Nest)


Birds nest ferns grow in an upright rosette of long apple-green shiny leaves. In the wild they settle in the branches of trees, but you can plant them in borders and pots. Can be used as tropical garden settings as a feature using layers in under planting. May also be set in the fork of a large tree to create a truly natural forest setting. Suited to containers and indoor gardens.

How to care

Light: Plant in full sun to partly shaded position ensuring the crown of the fern is above the soil line.

Water: The growing medium needs to be well-drained to allow for plenty of air movement around the roots and avoid wet feet. Remove old fronds to keep plants looking fresh and avoid disease. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established.

Humidity: Protect from frost and keep moist during dry periods. Ferns thrive in humid conditions, provide frequent watering during the warmer months and less during winter.

Fertilise: Apply a slow-release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots.
