I've had this plant (Edward) for a good year or so now but never known what it is. Hoping someone is able to help me identify it and understand what these brown spots are as I don't want to lose him.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Welcome!

Edward is a Bird's Nest Fern. Edward is an epiphyte so needs fast draining soil (like bark), lots of water and humidity. Edward would rather live in the shade.

Hi Daisyl thanks so much for your quick response! I've got to buy some bits to re pot my monstera (Brie 😬) so I'll pick be sure to get some new soil for Edward then.

Would baby bio be any good for Edward as well do you know?

Thanks again!

I don't know what Baby Bio is.

Something for epileptic orchids would do.

PS: When you take it out of the pot, give it a gentle shake to get rid of excess soil and re-pot in the same pot.
