2" Champions Bird's Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus 'Campio')

$6.99

1.Light: Asplenium ferns generally prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some shade but avoid direct sunlight, especially harsh afternoon sun, which can scorch their leaves. A north or east-facing window is typically ideal for indoor plants.

2. Temperature: These ferns thrive in moderate temperatures ranging from 60-75°F (15-24°C). They are sensitive to cold drafts and temperature extremes, so avoid placing them near heaters, air conditioners, or cold windows.

3. Humidity: Asplenium ferns prefer high humidity levels. Regular misting of the leaves or placing the pot on a humidity tray with water and pebbles can help maintain adequate humidity levels. A room humidifier can also be beneficial, especially in dry indoor environments.

4. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch. Use room-temperature water and ensure good drainage to prevent root rot. Reduce watering slightly in winter when growth slows down.

5. Soil: Plant Asplenium ferns in a well-draining potting mix designed for ferns or general indoor plants. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and a bit of sand or bark can provide good drainage and retain moisture.

6. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter when growth slows down.

7. Pruning and Maintenance: Trim yellow or dead fronds at the base to maintain the plant's appearance and encourage new growth. Remove any debris or dead foliage from the plant regularly.

8. Potting: Repot Asplenium ferns every 1-2 years or when they outgrow their pots. Choose a slightly larger pot with drainage holes to accommodate the growing roots and refresh the potting mix.

9. Pests: Watch for common pests such as spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs. Inspect the plant regularly, especially under the leaves and along stems. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

If "Asplenium campio 'Champions'" refers to a specific cultivar or variety not widely recognized, I recommend consulting with a local botanical garden, nursery, or horticultural expert for more precise care instructions tailored to that particular plant.
