The Wild Bird's nest Fern is native to the hammocks and swamps and somewhat dry (usu. seasonally) areas to very wet areas and swamps of south Florida and the Keys possibly. It is a great and unusual-appearing native fern but is sadly listed as endangered by the state of Florida and is vulnerable to habitat destruction!

MORE FACTS - Usually grows on logs and tree trunks and branches of low to moderately high trees, on the lower branches, or on dead trees. Found in wet and seasonally dry areas of south and southwest Florida, including the wet areas such as the hammocks and seasonally dry pine flatwoods of the Everglades.
