The birds nest fern is the most popular fern in gardens. Its large, leathery leaves have the shape of a nest and can grow on tree trunks, rocks, or even on other ferns. Birds nest ferns are native to Australia and the South Pacific region. Asplenium australasicum grows as a shrubby plant, with a rosette of yellow-green fronds which are 60 to 80 cm long and 3 to 21 cm wide. It can be distinguished from ''A. nidus'' by its prominent midrib under its fronds, giving the fronds a keeled appearance. The spores form in parallel lines which run in parallel with the veins and oblique to the midrib
