Description

Asplenium 'Leslie' variety with its specially tersed wild curly leaves has a beautiful fresh green color and is a strong tropical medium-sized fern. The bowl or basket shaped fronds have wavy margins and as the plant matures the ends of the fronds become branched or crested forming a very distinct look. Compared to A. 'Crissie', 'Leslie' is more compact, upright and overall a much smaller fern.

Aspleniums are trendy and do require ordinary care. With their fixed and elegant shape they make Victorian times revive.

Birds Nest Ferns are light feeders and only require low doses of fertilizer.
