Bird's Nest Fern


This slow-growing beauty gets bigger and better over time! Featuring long, narrow leaves, it’s a beautiful contrast to bigger-leafed houseplants as well as fine-textured ferns.

Light Level: Indirect Sunlight

This plant needs to live in a room with at least some natural light. Place it on a table or countertop with windows nearby.

Water Level: Thirsty

This plant can only go 1-2 weeks without water so check on it weekly and add water every time the top two inches of soil dry out.

Quick Tips

Bird’s nest fern tolerates dry soil and lower humidity than most other fern varieties. Even still, it prefers regular moisture and abundant humidity.

Grower Spotlight

Gustavo Sixto

Head Grower Gustavo Sixto loves Bird’s Nest Fern because it thrives in shade, so it tolerates low light inside, making it perfect as a houseplant. He’s also a fan of its distinctive shape and the drama it brings to indoor environments like his home. Gustavo knows ferns: He’s been a part of the Costa Farms family since 2011 and especially loves propagation and hybridizing new varieties.
