Description

Asplenium antiquum, known as bird's nest fern, originally comes from the tropical and subtropical regions of Asia. This epiphytic plant thrives in humid, shaded forests where it grows on trees or on the forest floor. Asplenium antiquum prefers high humidity and temperatures between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius. For terrarium cultivation, it is important to use a well-draining, humus-rich soil and to spray the plant regularly to maintain humidity. Direct sunlight should be avoided to prevent leaf burn.

The dense, glossy green leaves of Asplenium antiquum grow in a rosette-like formation, reminiscent of a nest. The simple, undivided fronds can reach up to one metre in length, providing an attractive, tropical appearance. In a terrarium, the plant serves not only as a decorative focal point but also as a natural shelter for small animals and reptiles. The linear sori on the underside of the leaves contribute to reproduction and are another interesting feature of this species. Asplenium antiquum helps to improve air quality in the terrarium by filtering pollutants and supporting high humidity, making it an ideal addition to humidity-loving terrarium environments.
