Bird's Nest Fern FAQ

Can the Bird’s Nest Fern be grown outdoors?

Yes, so long as it receives shade and the temperatures don’t drop below 40 degrees F!

Does this plant require misting?

Since the Bird’s Nest Fern likes humidity, spraying it or misting it will help it thrive!

Is this plant disease or pest-resistant?

It can be affected by common pests, such as scale, so use natural insecticidal soaps instead of chemical pesticide to combat these issues.

Bird's Nest Fern Care


Choose a location where it can receive shade and humidity, such as an east or north-facing window. Then, plant it in a pot that is at least two times the size of its shipping container it arrives in.


Since this plant loves humidity, provide a humid environment by placing the Bird’s Nest Fern in a bathroom, kitchen, or near a humidifier. If placed in other spaces, mist your Fern regularly (at least twice weekly). If you’re not sure when to mist, simply check the soil down to around 2 inches. If the soil is dry, it’s time to mist your plant.


During the growing season (between April to September) fertilize your plant once a month using specialized formula for house plants.
