English name:Crispy Wave Fern
Latin name:Asplenium nidus 'Crispy Wave'
About me:My name is a pretty good descriptor: I have thin, crinkly leaves that rise upwards from my pot. I am glossy and bright green.
Useful to know:
South East Asia.
In the wild, I can grow up to 80cm; as a houseplant, I'll probably stay more compact.
I like moderate, indirect light. Please keep me away from direct sunlight and deep shade.
I like my soil to be moist, but don't let me get too soggy.
Cool to average household temperatures between 16-21°C. Keep away from draughts.
I'm not too greedy, give me a weak solution occasionally during the growth season.
Remove excess dust with a damp cloth, however take care to avoid tender new fronds. Do not use leaf shine as the fronds are sensitive to chemicals.
Rotate your plant if it gets more light from one side, this will help maintain an even shape.
Good news: I'm pet-safe!
I am really good at removing toxins and impurities from the air, so I'll help you breathe more easily.
