Birds Nest Fern Care 101


Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.


Water every 1–2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Do not water directly into the center of your fern, but instead, water around it.

This plant can benefit from extra humidity.
