Dragon fern, Leslie Bird’s Nest Fern, Asplenium Antiquum
Selling size: Single Bushy plant mentioned in the last picture
Bird’s Nest Leslie Fern is a head-turning house plant that looks like it came out of a Prehistoric jungle. The ruffles at the end of its leaves give this fern an unusual and unique look that resembles crispy lettuce. The fronds fan out and become ruffled and notched at their outermost tips, and this creates a frilly effect that is really quite unusual.Birdsnest Leslie is low maintenance and thrives in partially sunny spots with some humidity.
The Bird’s Nest Fern prefers moderate, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight and deep shade. An east or north-facing window will serve the fern best.
Water thoroughly during the growing season but less so in the winter. Keep moist but do not allow to stand in water. Bird’s Nest Ferns are best watered around edge, directly onto the soil, as pouring into the crown may cause it to rot.
Asplenium Leslie benefits from cool to average household temperatures between 16°C and 21°C. Avoid draughts.
The Crested Bird’s Nest Fern does not like hot, dry conditions. Try to maintain at least some degree of humidity by misting regularly or relocating to steamier rooms. This plant is ideal for the bathroom or kitchen.
Does not require a lot of extra feeding. Apply a weak solution occasionally during the growth season.
