Crispy Wave Fern (Japanese Asplenium Nidus)
A crispy wave fern is one of the most unique plants you can grow in your home. It’s also known as the birds nest fern. The plant is classed as “easy to grow” but when I first got one in my home, there were a few teething problems. So I’ve put together everything I learnt in this guide so you don’t make the same mistakes. But first, let’s get some of the very basics covered.
So, how do you care for a crispy wave plant? Crispy Wave Plants need well-draining soil, but it needs to be constantly moist. Keep it out of direct sunlight, it prefers low-light. Also ensure that the temperature doesn’t fluctuate, keep it in the range of 70-80 °F. Fertilize it once a month during the growing season but only use liquid fertilizer.
Getting these basics right will ensure that you have a healthy plant. Your crispy fern will live for many years to come if you treat it right. Whilst getting the basics is simple, a deeper understanding requires a greater attention to detail. However, it can easily be accomplished by beginners or experts alike.
Taking appropriate care of your crispy wave plant is not difficult as long as you have the right knowledge to hand. Here in this guide, I’ve covered everything that I learned during my time with the plant. So you can be successful in caring for yours.
