The Bird’s Nest Fern earned its name from its wide, rippled leaves that emerge from a central rosette. When new fronds first appear, they resemble tiny bird eggs, hence the nickname Bird’s Nest.

The fern’s flat, wavy, or crinkly fronds are affected by the amount of light the fern receives — the more light, the more crinkled its leaves become. Native to tropical rainforests in Asia, Africa, and Australia, the Bird’s Nest Fern is an epiphytic fern that typically grows on other trees and logs.  Due to this growth habit, you can affix it to planks or hang it on a wall as a piece of living art!

This pet-friendly plant is easy to grow indoors and can survive in low light or lower humidity areas than other ferns. The Bird’s Nest Fern’s textured green leaves and slightly untamed growth will brighten those darker spots in your home or office.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We’ve spent a lot of time selecting pots that have optimal drainage, look great, and come with a saucer so your floor or desk won’t get ruined. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
