What's special?

 Bird’s nest fern is an interesting rainforest plant which is naturally found growing on the surface of other trees. When grown in pots for indoor décor, they thrive & make for a strikingly unique houseplant. Its foliage which is a series of long, vertical, bright apple green fronds rising from a central rosette, gives an unusually cool tropical feel. The hasty & crinkly look of the structure resembles a bird’s nest and hence the name. Bird’s nest fern develops at a moderate speed and fronds will not grow much long in pots, but the beautiful foliage is reason enough to bring this plant into your living room.
