Asplenium nidus is most commonly referred to as the Bird’s Nest Fern. In the wild, this fern grows everywhere: on trees and on the ground. Descended from an ancient lineage of plants, these plants never flower or produce seeds. Instead, they sporulate to reproduce. Spores are generated from leaf tissue, and are a part of how ferns reproduce sexually and shuffle their genes. All plants that sporulate love moisture and can tolerate being perpetually moist (but not wet). It is theorized that in later plants, flowers and cones evolved from modified sporulating leaf structures.
