Scientific Name: Asplenium scolopendrium 'crispum'
Synonyms: Wavy-frond Harts Tongue Fern

  • Fresh, Ruffled Green foliage
  • If given enough root space, will grow larger over time
  • Ideal for an East-facing Bathroom 
  • Somewhat Collectable 
  • The perfect Beginner Fern

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.

Try these styling tips to create an awe-inspiring showpiece.

  • Combine with an attractive Ceramic Planter for a tabletop masterpiece.
  • 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

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

    Water: Check regularly and water once the top 1cm-2cm of soil has dried. Avoid allowing it to dry out completely.
    Light: Medium to bright indirect light is ideal. Avoid too low light.
    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. No need to feed in Winter.
