Regular price $24.00 Sale


Bird's Nest Fern Japanese (Asplenium Nidus) is a hearty, low-light tolerant bird's nest fern known for its wavy leaf edges that unfurl from the center in a "bird's nest" shape.


Light + temperature

Bird's nest ferns prefer bright, indirect light, although they are somewhat low-light tolerant. Keep out of direct sun, although a dappled morning light is fine, especially in the winter.

Maintain indoor temperatures of 60-70° F

Likes humidity, but doesn't require it.

Water requirements

Bird's nest ferns like their soil to dry out a bit between waterings. These plants are quite tolerant of an underwater; the leaves should spring right back up again if left unwatered for too long a stretch. 


Great for pet-loving households, bird's nest ferns—including this Japanese variety—are non-toxic.

Care tips

While some people suggest misting these ferns regularly, we don't see a need. Instead, try placing this plant in an area of high humidity, like a bathroom.

Common issues

What do I do if my Japanese Bird's Nest Fern shows brown tips?

Not to worry! Just reduce your watering schedule and you shouldn't see any more brown forming on the leaves. You do not have to remove leaves that have brown tips or edges.
