The Bird's Nest 'Nidus' Fern is a unique fern with a distinctive appearance that resembles a bird's nest. This fern is a popular choice for indoor gardens because of its low maintenance and interesting appearance. It is native to tropical regions and can grow up to 2 feet wide and tall.
Bird's Nest 'Nidus' Ferns thrive in bright but indirect light. Place your plant in a well-lit area but avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. A north-facing window or an area with filtered light is ideal.
This fern prefers consistently moist soil, but be careful not to overwater it. Water your plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can lead to bacterial or fungal growth. Misting the leaves with a spray bottle is a good way to provide humidity.
Bird's Nest 'Nidus' Ferns prefer well-draining soil that is high in organic matter. Use a peat-based potting mix with perlite or vermiculite to ensure good drainage. Fertilize every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.
