Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Asplenium nidus is a species of fern in the family Aspleniaceae, native to tropical southeastern Asia, eastern Australia, Hawaii, Christmas Island, and eastern Africa. It is known by the common names bird's-nest fern or simply nest fern. Asplenium nidus forms large simple fronds visually similar to Banana leaves, with the fronds growing to 50-150 cm long and 10-20 cm broad. They are light green, often crinkled, with a black midrib, and exhibit circinate vernation. Spores develop in sori on the underside of the fronds. These sori form long rows extending out from the midrib on the back of the outer part of the lamina.show more
