Asplenium nidus, the birds nest fern, is an epiphytic fern that sends out large fronds from a central point, making a lovely nest shaped plant. Once established, they can grow quite large, making a dramatic statement for a shaded or semi shaded position. They can grow in trees, on rocks, or can grow in a well drained but moist soil. They also make good container plants.
Birds nest ferns need a shaded position, as full sun will burn the fronds. They are frost tender. They can be fed with a half strength liquid fertiliser from time to time.
Asplenium nidus has been renamed Asplenium autralasicum.
