Asplenium antiquum Leslie Fern



Asplenium Leslie

This is a pretty little lime green crested fern that’s also known as a birds nest fern.

Leslie grows in a compact form with a full, dense habit, but what we all love the most are those crested, feathery outer leaves.  This beauty has so texture and touchability - keep her on the coffee table so you can stroke those unusual fronds.

As well as perching on the coffee table Leslie will grow in a hanging basket, a shaded windowsill, or outside in a shady border. She needs light, but not the direct sun that will burn her leaves, and plenty of water running through her free-draining potting mix.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I look great indoors where my lime green fronds pop against a white wall, and I rock a tropical style garden.
  • I grow to: I’m pretty compact reaching 0.6-1m high and 0.6-1m wide 
  • Where to place me: I need semi-shade to full shade in the garden and a light spot indoors that doesn’t get any of those burning sunbeams.
  • How far to space me I need about 75cms of elbow room
  • Soil conditions: I need moist well-fed soils to look good. If I’m rocking a pot I need a regular liquid feed and plenty of water.
