The Bird’s Nest is a lower-maintenance fern that does great as a houseplant. Rippled, bright green leaves grow from the center of a nest-like crown, hence the name. When growing indoors, these fronds can reach up to two feet in length. This plant thrives in indirect sunlight, loves humidity (try them in your bathroom!), and it’s pet friendly.

Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Do not water directly into the center of your fern, but instead, water around it.
This plant can benefit from extra humidity.
This is a pet-friendly plant.
The roots of the Bird’s Nest Fern form dense root balls. This plant cannot be propagated and will remain as a single rosette indefinitely.
