Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

If planting as a houseplant, room temperatures between 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) are ideal, and no lower than 55ºF (13ºC). Providing some direct sunlight is great for the Bird's nest fern to grow well, but you need to only provide some morning or a small amount of pre-sunset. The fronds can become pale or have scorch marks on them if the sun is too hot. If planting outside in sub tropical climates, a partially shaded, humid site is required. The plant should be kept moist at all times. A peat based potting mix is required. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite (maybe a little less) is one mixture that will be fine. A peat based mixture with organic material is also good.
