Growing Bird’s nest fern in a vertical garden
This is another fern that lives successfully in containers, requiring the same conditions
as the Boston fern. Bird’s nest ferns have broader and more fragile leaves, which may
damage easily, so it is best to leave them with a bit of room to grow. The yellow-
green leaves offer bright contrast against darker greens in a wall composition.
Asplenium Floralee is a cold resistant version option that needs perhaps a bit more
humidity. It has more detailed, delicate fronds. And let’s not forget the famous hen
and chicken fern (Asplenium bulbiferum), well known for its hardiness in cool and
even drier climates (it is still shade loving, though).
