This plant produces undivided . lance-shaped fronds with slightly wavy edges which form a distinctive shuttlecock-like effect . arranged in a rosette. They create a really striking silhouette and grow up to 1.5 m in height. It makes a great houseplant . growing well indoors.

The glossy fronds are highly efficient at converting CO2 into oxygen and cleaning the air. It is also one of the longest living pot plants and extremely easy to look after . making it excellent value for money.


Moderate . indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight and deep shade.


Water thoroughly during the growing season but less so in the winter. Keep moist but do not allow to stand in water. Bird Nest Ferns are best watered around the plant . directly onto the soil as watering the center of the plant may cause it to rot.
