Asplenium Nidus or Bird's Nest Fern is a tropical plant, from Asia which belongs to
the aspleniaceas family.
Naturally is a epiphytic plant, and in the rainforest where it is native it can be seen on top of the trees with long leaves which can reach even to 0.90cms and more.
Of slow growing, it will be better to keep it in a warm atmosphere, with a temperature between 20º-30º, as it  will suffer when temperature gets down to 15ºc.
It offers good resistant to places of poor light.
Needs a good organic soil and it will thrive  much better when feeding it with a liquid fertiliser every 15 days, in the case it is in pots. When we plant Asplenium outside we can add a lyer of new substrate every year or add slow release fertilizer.
It is important not to overwater as it can suffer from rot, in the case of too much water.
Might suffer from any type of garden pests as for example mealy bugs, slugs and scales.
Easy to take care of and a long-lived plant.
We do not need to trim it, just get rid of the old leaves which get wilted at the bottom of the plant.
