The Asplenium antiquum Hurricane Bird's nest fern is a relatively new variety that has a wonderful whirlwind growth habit of glossy green leaves. It prefers a degree of humidity making it ideal for adding a touch of easy care, air purifying greenery to kitchens and bathrooms.
Shade-seeker! Direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and dark corners will stunt growth. Filtered light is right, so try putting near a north or east-facing window.
Twist and turn! Remembering to rotate this fern occasionally will help to create a full, even growth.
Remove excess dust with a damp cloth, however take care to avoid tender new fronds. Do not use leaf shine as the fronds are sensitive to chemicals.
