Asplenium nidus Birds nest fern Epithet means nest

Evergreen, 3 to 5 ft. (1 to 1.75 m) tall. Zones 10 and 11.

description: The fronds with virtually no stipe are undivided and it is especially significant for fine tuning that the midrib on the underside of the frond is rounded rather than keeled.

range and habitat: This pantropical species usually perches in trees.

culture and comments: Although it is an epiphyte in wild habitats, this species will grow as a terrestrial when provided with airy, fast-draining soil (either basically mineral or basically humus) in filtered shade. It is an easy and especially rewarding big-guy plant in the tropical garden. (Description by George Schenk.)

There are several cultivars including Asplenium nidus var. plicatum, commonly called the lasagna fern.
