Bird's Nest 'Nidus' Fern

The Bird's Nest Nidus Fern is naturally a epiphytic, which means they grow on the surface of other plants. In the rain-forest you will find them growing in the crooks and crannies of large trees. The Bird's Nest Fern makes for a beautiful house-plant, with its long lush crimped fronds. In ideal conditions, the Bird's Nest Fern will grow rather quickly and new leaves will emerge from the central rosette. This plant is great for a bathroom because in its natural habitat it enjoys a lot of warmth and moisture. So, if your bedroom, living-room, and dining area are already filled with plants, why not add this one to your bathroom?


  • Water: Keep the Bird's Nest Fern moist by watering 1-2 times a week.  Make sure to water the soil and not the central area "nest" of the plant. 
  • Light: Medium indirect light. They do well in an east or north facing window. Remember, they are used to the shade provided by the rain-forest canopy.
  • Temperature: 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Ferns are used to humid environments, so keep a humidifier near them or mist them daily.
  • Toxicity: Non-toxic for pets & humans
