Hey, I'm Asplenium antiquum "Osaka" and I'm a cultivated variety of Japanese Bird’s Nest Fern. I have striking, upright long shiny green leaves that have a ruffled, wavy edge, giving me a highly unique appearance. I love my curves. I can be a little difficult to maintain but the rewards are huge as I'll will stand out a mile in any houseplant collection.
Comes in a 12cm pot at 30cm tall.
I like it warm and moist with good indirect light.
I don’t like it when it’s too cold; temperatures above 10°C please.
LOOKING AFTER ME
Keep my soil moist, don’t let it dry out. This doesn’t mean soggy, that could lead to waterlogging and root rot; oh dear. Mist my fronds regularly, I like that. Temperatures between 15°C and 21°C are my favourite.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m good with pets and children, non-toxic but don’t eat me.
