Scientific Name: Asplenium Nidus
Beautifully shaped fronds fan outwards from a central 'rosetta', giving this ancient earth dweller the imaginative name of 'Birds Nest Fern'. Many glorious varieties exist, and are distributed across India, South-east Asia, Australia and east Africa.
Asplenium is a dependable house plant which will create new unfurling fronds throughout the year, especially when given access to medium to bright light and high humidity. Consider adding a few of these green-poppy plants as a decorative installation within your bathroom!
