  • Botanical Name: Asplenium antiquum 'Leslie'
  • Common Name(s): Bird's-Nest Leslie, Crested Japanese Bird's-Nest Fern, ō-tani-watari (Japanese)
  • Description: Native to the tropical regions of Asia and east Africa, Asplenium antiquum 'Leslie' comes from the same family of ferns as the 'Nidus'. Like the Nidus, this tropical plant prefers "rainforest" conditions in partial shade or indirect sunlight, and humidity. Its leaves are differentiated from the 'Nidus' by its compact uniform width and split curly ends.

 

Care:

  • Light: Give your Ferns a position near a window that gets morning or late afternoon sun, and keep the Ferns away from strong sunlight, especially during the summer. Direct sunlight will make them lose their leaves or turn their fronds yellow. You can keep your Ferns in dim light as long as you give them regular breaks in bright light. They can be given artificial light, but this should be from a special gardening bulb or a fluorescent strip. Ordinary light bulbs generate too much heat.
  • Pet FriendlyYes most are, however the Asparagus Fern and Fern 'Sprengeri' are NOT pet friendly
  • Water: Most Ferns like evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants. Bushy Ferns can be difficult to water. Try using a watering can with a long spout to direct the water to the center of the plant. Water generously, until it drains out of the bottom of the pot.
  • HumidityHigh
  • Temperature: An individual Fern’s place of origin and adaptability will determine how high or low temperature the fern needs. Most Ferns don’t like cold. Those Ferns from tropical regions truly appreciate 60°-70° F. Those from more temperate regions enjoy temperatures between 50°-60°F.
  • Difficult Level: Easy
