Asplenium antiquum Osaka is a cultivated compact variety of Japanese Bird’s Nest Fern. It develops an upright rosette of long shiny green leaves that have a ruffled, wavy edge, giving it a highly decorative appearance.
Asplenium is also sometimes known as Spleenwort, as it was once thought to be beneficial to the spleen. It is incredibly easy to look after making it a popular choice for your house plant collection.
Hates getting its hair wet! Water this fern from the base and not from above, watering from above can cause the crown to rot.
Don’t leave me high n' dry! Browning on the frond tips is caused from a lack of humidity in the air. Moving to a humid room or frequent misting will prevent this.
Remove excess dust with a damp cloth, however take care to avoid tender new fronds. Avoid using leaf shine as the fronds are sensitive to chemicals.
