Bird's Nest Fern 'Crissie': Asplenium nidus
Bird’s nest ferns grow best in medium to low indirect light. If these ferns receive more light they will have more crinkled leaves, while one that receives less light will have flatter leaves. Too much light or direct light can cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die.
Bird's nest ferns are epiphytic which means they typically grow on other things such as logs and tree trunks. Due to their light requirements and size these are best placed in taller vivariums such as ones that are 24" tall or larger.

Before ordering perishable goods such as plants, fruit flies, or isopods, please take a look at the temperatures here in Montreal as well as at your location. If temperatures on both ends are between 7C-29C we guarantee that all perishables will arrive safely and undamaged no matter the shipping method chosen. If an order arrives damaged we will replace or refund the affected items at no cost! If temperatures are above 29C or below 7C we do not offer this shipping guarantee unless you choose Priority shipping**.
