Victoria belongs in the Birds Nest Fern family and makes for an excellent houseplant. The striking broad leafed foliage brings a structural element to indoor design. Victoria fern are identified by their leathery, crinkly fronds.
Victoria grows best in medium to low indirect light. The light your bird’s nest fern receives will affect how crinkled the leaves are. One that receives more light, for example, will have more crinkled leaves, while one that receives less light will have flatter leaves. Do keep in mind that too much light or direct light will cause the fronds on bird’s nest fern to yellow and die.
Under ideal circumstances, all ferns would like to have consistently moist, but not wet, soil. However, if you are a little forgetful this plant may forgive you; she will tolerate soil that dries out from time to time. She also does not require the same level of humidity that many other kinds of ferns need.
When your plant is considerably lighter in weight, simply submerge the entire root ball in a bucket of water. Leave her there for about ten minutes until the ball is completely engorged and no longer floats; this way you can be ensured that the water is reaching the roots and with a good soaking your birds nest fern will need less attention.
Proper ventilation is necessary for good plant growth and your plant will appreciate a light mist in-between watering, especially in the warmer months or in drying conditions like wind, air-conditioning or heating.
Approximately once a month, provide added nutrients with a little liquid fertilizer added to the water. This will help maintain a lush, healthy green growth.
