Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’

Family: Aspleniaceae

Countries: Africa, Asia, Australia, Japan

Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ (PBR) is a very versatile and attractive fern, which produces delightfully ruffled, fresh-green coloured fronds.  This is a great choice of fern to grow as a house plant or to plant inside a terrarium, vivarium, or bottle garden.  Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ is sometimes known by its common name of the Japanese Asplenium Fern.

When the new fronds of Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ grow up from the centre of the fern for the first time, they display quite a straight form, but as they begin to age, the fronds develop the wavy character and habit that this fern is known for and admired.

I wanted to include different leaf shapes and textures in my planting inside my BiOrbAir terrarium, so I was keen to include this pretty, rather ruffled looking Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ specimen inside this terrarium.

You can follow how well this particular Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ fern grows inside the BiOrbAir, in the first part of my BiOrbAir review.  This link will take you straight to the update which was written at the time when this Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ specimen was first planted inside this terrarium.  You can follow this Asplenium nidus ‘Crispy Wave’ specimen’s growth and development in this, and the following trial and review updates.
