A gorgeous and large bird's next fern in an 8" diameter wicker basket. Bird’s nest ferns grow well in filtered sunlight to a moderate amount of shade. Don’t expose them to direct sunlight other than the very early morning sun. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves. Indoors, an east- or north-facing window is ideal. These plants like soil that’s loose and rich in organic matter with excellent drainage. A peat-based potting mix is good for container plants. The ferns prefer a consistent amount of soil moisture, but they don’t do well sitting in soggy soil. Water whenever the top inch of soil begins to dry out. Avoid watering directly into the center of the plant, as this can encourage mold growth and rot in the dense nest. Aim water at the soil to avoid wetting the fern's fronds. Rated a 3 on our care scale as an intermediate plant!
