    The birds nest is a epiphyte prefers growing on rocks and trees and they don't naturally grow a trunk because the will spread their roots over the tree/rock and not in a tangle
    So birdnest ferns are not tree ferns .

    It's "nidus", not "nidas"!

    I'm growing one of these indoors and the leaves are turning brown and slightly transparent. And they smell horrible, any ideas as to what it is?

    Hi Randy,
    My birdnest is about 16 years old and the trunk is over 14 inches tall ground to crown and at least 10 inches across. I recon this is oldest fern I ever had.

    Asplenium nidas has a distribution from Africa to Japan. It has many different phenotypes, and all are both terrestrial, and epihpytes. They all grow a trunk, that is a mass of roots, just like any other tree fern. If you were paying attention, it should have been apparent, that´╗┐ my argument wasn't that a terrestrial fern is a tree fern. Thanks for trying though.
