Asplenium nidus "Birds Nest Fern"
The key to a healthy bird's nest fern is providing it with ample warmth, humidity, and moisture. When growing it as a houseplant, one of the best places to locate a bird's nest fern is near a shower or tub in a bathroom where it will receive optimal humidity and warmth along with sufficient light.
New leaves will constantly emerge from the central area of the plant, which resembles a bird's nest. Do not touch, move, or handle the new, delicate fronds as they emerge from the nest. They are extremely fragile, and if you touch them, there is a high chance of them becoming damaged or deformed.
