The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Asplenium australasicum or Birds Nest Fern is an epiphytic, tree dwelling fern that is naturally occurring in moist rainforests from New South Wales and Queensland. It needs a full shade or dappled light position with moist but not saturated soil. Keep free from frost.
