Asplenium bulbiferum, widely known as the Hen and Chicken Fern, is a stunning evergreen fern native to New Zealand. It is named for its unique reproductive method, where it produces bulbils on the top surface of the fronds which eventually fall off and root, resembling a hen and her chicks. The fern's lush, arching fronds and delicate textures make it a great decorative plant, adding a touch of tropical appeal to both indoor and outdoor spaces.
It prefers partial to full shade and well-drained, moist soil. It can also tolerate high humidity environments, making it suitable for bathrooms or kitchens, but it is not frost-hardy and should be kept away from direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.
Asplenium bulbiferum has a relatively compact growth habit, typically reaching an eventual height and width of about 60-90cm in a pot. In outdoor, natural settings, it may grow larger.
