Birds Nest taller than the fence.

Birds Nest taller than the fence. (Asplenium australasicum (Birds Nest Fern))

Its in the 12 year old range and has grown far past what I expected. It even has a thick 2' trunk. I have no idea what the limit on size is for there or how long they can live.

You really don't see these with trunks Penney on the internet because they grow on tree's and I would guess they topple out sooner to their demise I guess.Eaten probably.

I was thinking about thar after oooking them up as they are hiuse ferns here. You must be doing some thing right for it to have a trunk . Here tender plants would get killed low to the ground come winter the ground frost would kill them.
