Deets: An amazingly easy to grow form of the popular Bird's Nest Fern. This selection has more fronds that end in ornate cresting! Like many epiphytic ferns, this plant likes to dry out a bit before being watered. Also great as an easy to grow houseplant! The long green leaves of the 4" Crissie Bird's Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus) emerge from the center of this natural air purifier giving it a grand, bold look and feel. The ends of the leaves appear blunted as they form a split on the end with a flourish. The Crissie, like all bird's nest ferns, is perfect for a hanging pot where the leaves drape or in a stylish pot on a table or floor.
Name(s): Crissie; Asplenium Nidus
Light: Indirect light is best, so a bright spot, but not in direct sunlight. Can tolerate bright fluorescent lighting as well.
Water: Weekly. And this one loves a good mist! This plant doesn't mind to dry out, just not too dry. Just about an inch or two from the top should be dry. Overwatering will cause root rot.
Grower: Beginners, Advanced, Expert; all types.
Pet Friendly: Yes
Fun Fact: This plant is a NASA certified air purifier! The fronds' thickness and rigidity allow the Crispy Wave to filter harmful particles such as formaldehyde from the air to a higher degree.
