Help identifying plant?
I recently received a houseplant that was sent as a gift to the family after my grandfather passed away. It came with no identifying tag or name, and I don’t know who sent it, much less which florist it was purchased from. I’d love to keep it alive and healthy, but I can’t care for it if I don’t know what it is. Could you help? I’ve attached several pictures from several angles.
A Bird’s Nest Fern has long, erect, leathery fronds that never split like those of other ferns. The wide rippled leaves emerge from a central rosette or crown that looks like a fuzzy brown funnel. It’s important never to get water on the crown since the crown is easily damaged. The tongue shaped fronds of a Bird’s Nest Fern are fragile so place it where the leaves will not be bumped. You can read all my care tips for a Bird’s Nest Fern in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
