The Birds Nest fern Crissie is another hardy variety of this quite large genus, not only is it a real stunner with its unique frilly foliage.

These little stunners are perfect for any fern lover or those of you looking to dabble in this world of tropical wonderment. As compact growers, they are ideal for a filtered window sill in a humid bathroom or kitchen but are perfectly happy if placed on a tabletop or shelf in any living area or office with provision taken for a little extra humidity.

This Birds Nest Fern Crissie houseplant is a hardy little fern that is fuss-free and requires very little attention except for regular watering as they like their soil to stay slightly moist to the touch. However, they will handle short bouts of drying out, though try avoiding this to keep your plant crisp edge free.

Pair this beauty with a planter of choice and revel in its understated beauty... even when clustered with other houseplants, it'll shine.

Please note: Birds Nest ferns are not known to be toxic to pets or humans, but prefer to not be eaten to look their best.

Follow these care instructions to keep your Birds Nest fern happy and healthy.

Water: Check regularity and water once the top 1cm-2cm of soil has dried.
Light: Medium to bright indirect light is ideal.
Humidity: High humidity, such as bathrooms, however, can be placed on a pebble tray.
Fertilize Balanced Liquid Fertilizer once a month during spring and summer
