The Hart’s Tongue Fern ‘Crispum’ is often sought after for its deep green frilly foliage. Giving it a unique and contrasting appearance, compared to many other “Birds Nest” Fern varieties. Their broad green leaves tend to stand upright, exaggerating this lovely fern among other houseplants.
This fern not only looks lovely, but is also relatively hardy. Thus, it makes a great choice for novice and experienced plant lovers alike. Their low maintenance nature can be attributed to their thick and strappy foliage. The Aspelenium naturally grows in the dense undergrowth of the canopy, needing dappled light and good humidity. This makes them ideal for an east-facing bathroom, which will provide ample light and warmth.
Hart's Tongue Ferns are relatively slow-growing, so they won't overcrowd a constricted space too soon, although after they mature they will grow quite large, creating a dramatic statement with their intriguing foliage and crown-like growing habit.

- Consider turning it into a handmade Moss ball for a delightful hanging option (this can be done via email at an additional cost).
- Whilst young, place it in a Terrarium as an accent piece
