Common Name: Bird’s-nest fern
Scientific Name: Asplenium nidus

The fern is non-poisonous and is occasionally eaten by the local tribes in Malaysia.
The Malaysian natives use the fern as medicine also in some cases. For example, they infuse the leaves and it can be used to ease labour pains. It can also be used as a lotion to treat fever when the leaves are pounded with water. Tea made from the fronds can help with fatigues.
