A crested birdnest fern. This is a fantastic, crested form of this widely distributed tropical Asian fern. Growing to 30 inches across in some cases, with wide, apple-green fronds with a prominent midrib that becomes darker, almost black, in older plants.
This form has crested leaves that end in deeply cut, finger like serrations. Outstandingly decorative and versatile as a garden subject, houseplant or terrarium plant. A choice new variety.
