For the one who wants to add an exotic plant to a small garden, the dwarf variant of the Birds Nest Fern is a great choice! This plant produces young and long lanceolate glossy green fronds that sprout upwards before they are lowered down and form a crown or a bird's nest. The ends of the fronds branch out, causing them to have a distinct 'elk horn' look. Use this plant as a striking feature when planted in a suspended pot or as an indoor feature potted plant on any surface.
