I bought a house in September 2020. A clean pallet for another 15 years as I’ve recently left my tropical garden in Brisbane and moved to Ipswich.

@angie_g I wish it’s mate was close by. Never reproduces tho. Need to buy more. Excellent plant. I’ve had this in same pot for 20yrs. Slide left to see it in previous years.

I’ve never heard them called crows nest before! But checked online and bird’s nest ferns are also referred to as crows nest. Wiki tells me: “Bird's-nest fern is a common name applied to several related species of epiphytic ferns in the genus Asplenium.” “Species known as bird's nest fern include: A. nidus (bird's-nest fern) A. australasicum (crow's-nest fern) A. antiquum A. serratum (wild bird's-nest fern)”

@kez001uk hey Kerry they’re called fronds not leaves. Same for palm fronds. Ferns have spores and palms seeds. X

@columbiariver Looks like it’s different to mine. Maybe nth hemisphere ? Looks this was labelled as Australian Swipe to see more pics of same plant. I never know wether to call them birds or crows. It’s in a 25mm pot inside a tub. Bit of water and out of the sun it just keeps giving.

You're right. I'll check out my fern book for better ID. Thank you. Aren't they gorgeous?
