About Fergus

Fergus' common name, the 'bird's nest fern', sounds a little insulting for such a beauty. The name comes from his dense crown at the centre, from which new leaves grow. In his native East Asia he'll be found growing anywhere there's humidity and dappled light, often in forests or in gaps in the trunks of larger trees.

As an indoor plant, he's slow growing, so no need to worry about him taking over your bathroom. He doesn't have high demands. He likes everything at a moderate level: water, heat, light.

FERGUS THE BIRD'S NEST FERN LIKES...

Bright, indirect light
Fergus likes moderate light. Try a few metres from a window without direct light.

Humidity
In spring and summer, bird's nest ferns like moist (not wet) soil. He'll thrive in the humidity of a bright bathroom, or else will appreciate a regular misting.

Warmth
He doesn't enjoy the cold, so give him a spot away from drafts or very chilly rooms (but not by a radiator).

Top Tip
Keep this indoor plant looking his best by giving his mature fronds an occasional wipe with a cloth. Best to leave the delicate younger ones alone.
