Asplenium Prolongatum Hooker, also known as Japanese Fern is a genus of about 700 species of ferns, often treated as the only genus in the family Aspleniaceae.

LIGHT
  • These plants need filtered light to light shade.
  • Don’t expose to direct sun other than the very early morning sun.
  • Placing the fern by an East or Northern facing window is ideal.
SOIL
  • Plant the bird’s nest fern in loose, rich organic compost or a peat-based potting mix.
  • A mixture of two parts peat and one part perlite would work well.
  • Otherwise, try a peat-based mixture with organic material.
WATER
  • Keep their compost moist, but don’t let the plant become soggy.
  • Also, avoid watering right into the “nest” as that encourages mold and rot.
  • Water the soil rather than the plant.
FERTILIZER
  • During the growing season (April through September), fertilize about once a month with weak liquid fertilizer.
  • Don’t put fertilizer pellets in the central cup or “nest.”
  • Withhold any fertilizer during the winter, when most plants are in their resting phase.
  • Too much food will cause deformed leaves and/or brown or yellow-spotted leaves.
