Asplenium antiquum - broad leaf bird's nest fern

APPEARANCE :  Shade loving foliage plant suited to ferneries & rock gardens. Attach to the fork of a tree for a natural effect. With regular watering this fern will establish quickly.
USE FOR : Tropical gardens as a feature plant or shady understaory planting. Suited to containers and indoor gardens.
PLANTING : Plant in a shaded position ensuring the crown of the fern is above the soil line. The growing medium needs to be well drained to allow for plenty of air movement around the roots and avoid wet feet. Remove old fronds to keep plants looking fresh and avoid disease. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.
CARE : Ferns thrive in humid conditions, provide frequent watering during the warmer months and less during winter. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a >liquid based fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots. Tolerates light frost once established.
HEIGHT & WIDTH :  0.9m H x 1.5 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. You can see an example in the image gallery
