The bird nest fern, or ‘asplenium victoria’, features quite often in our living plant gifts. It is a great addition to any indoor space or office, or outside in a shaded position.
Why is it such a good plant?
I’m glad you asked – here’s why:
- striking foliage
- lush green
- air purifier
- non-toxic (safe for pets and children to be around)
- great for the bathroom (likes humidity) (check out this post about it on FlowerPower)
- doesn’t require heaps of water
When we have them in the shop we water once a week only, making sure they are not boggy. It is also important to make sure they are not sitting in a draft (such as constant air-con flow). Sometimes they may appreciate a spray with water to keep up the humidity if the air is dry.
