Native to the tropical forests of Asia,
the Asplenium nidus can survive as an epiphyte or terrestrial plant.
Often found in the shady crevices of trees, they thrive in warm,
humid areas in partial or full shade, making them the perfect plant to spruce up
This fern has the characteristic light green fronds that emerge
from the middle of its leaf-rosette. Often crinkled, they grow long and broad,
and roll back as they brown to create the 'nest' of leaves.
