Asplenium nidus - birds nest fern & pot cover combination


  • Position: indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)

    Lance-shaped fronds, each with a slightly wavy edge, form a distinctive shuttlecock-like effect with a really striking silhouette. Initially the fronds of this asplenium are a light lime green, however they soon mature to a deeper, richer green.

    We've paired the plant here with our etched aluminium planter, a striking contemporary take on antique Indian vases, spun and finished by hand to a traditional design. Pot measures Ø17.5cm x H14cm.

  • Home care: Avoid handling the newly emerging fronds and water regularly in the growing season so that the compost remains moist but not waterlogged. Mist the leaves regularly with water - particularly in winter when the central heating is turned on. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter and repot in spring when the plant becomes root-bound.
