An iconic South East Asian fern, with handsome bright green leaves neatly arranged in a spreading rosette. Ideally suited to a warm humid spot in moderate indirect light, for example in a bathroom or kitchen.

In the wild it roots itself to tree crevices, hence known as the 'Bird's Nest Fern.' This is a slow growing plant but with correct care it can eventually reach a height and spread of up to 1m in maturity.

Water into the soil when it the surface has slightly dried out, avoiding watering into the centre of the rosette as this can cause rot. Any damaged or dead fronds may be carefully removed as needed. Rotate to ensure even growth and form, and improve humidity if the edges of the leaves tend to go brown.

Frequently asked questions about houseplants

How often should I feed my house plants?

With some house plants, you can feed them according to the label on the feed. It may look like it's not enough and you could be tempted to add more than the recommended dose, but do remember that the correct dosages will prevent the roots from getting burned from too much concentration. 

As a rule of thumb, once a month, a mild solution of a balanced organic fertiliser is ideal to be applied in the growing season. 

How often should I water my house plants?

Watering houseplants is always a tricky business. Some love to have their soil moist at all times, others like to be on the drier side. Also, every home is different and winters are not the same as summers. 

Conditions differ throughout the year, all over the country and plants have different preferences. 

Make sure you read the care instructions that come with the plant and adjust that according to your home.
