4" Fern, Birdsnest Leslie


We have run out of stock for this item.

Aspleniums are natives of the deep, dark jungle, where they can be found in one of their two favorite places, hanging onto jungle trees or palm trees as an epiphyte, or nesting in decomposing rocky piles as a lithophyte. Leslie has the usual birdsnest configuration, that of lime leather leaves rolling up from a central "nest" with the new baby frondlets looking like unhatched "eggs". Wildly crested Leslie looks like a frilly salad with fantastically forky ends. Delicate appearing, she's tougher than she looks and endures somewhat lower light after generations of jungle understory deep shade, and loves high humidity. This is the perfect bathroom plant.

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):  Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Med/High (4):  Needs more light than most, but direct light not necessary. Can handle morning and afternoon sun directly on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Low/Med (2):  A little less finicky than most. Doesn't require much attention at all.
