Asplenium nidus ‘Bird’s Nest Fern-250mm pot

$18.50

Asplenium nidus gets its common name, bird’s nest fern, from the fact that its shiny, undivided fronds are arranged in an upward-spreading, bowl shaped rosette. These apple green, slightly undulate fronds may grow up to 1.5m (5 feet) long, but are more often about 45cm (18 inch) long by 5-8cm (2-3 inch) wide. Each one has a dark brown central rib that narrows and fades to merge with the colour of the rest of the frond for the last third of its length. For the first few weeks, new fronds, which unroll from a central spongy, fibrous, dark brown core, are delicate and easily damaged.
