crested Japanese bird's nest fern 'Leslie'

RHS award of garden merit

Quantity
  • Position: indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 45cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)

    The fronds of this unusual fern, fan out and become ruffled and notched at their outermost tips, and this creates a frilly effect that is really quite unusual. They make fine, stand alone specimens, but if you like to cluster your house plants together, then this one is inavluable for adding textural interest.

  • Home care: Keep well watered, but allow the compost to get a little dry before repeating the process. Misting the leaves regularly with water will help improve the humidity around the plant, and feed with a diluted liquid fertiliser (only one quarter the recommended strength), when watering from late spring to early autumn.
