Public Description:

Asplenium, commonly known as “spleenwort”, has a cosmopolitan but largely tropical distribution. There are approximately 459 species in the world and 19 species (19 taxa) in Türkiye. Like other ferns, this genus does not contain flower, fruit or seed. Although they have vascular systems as seen in flowering plants, they produce spores instead of seeds to reproduce. A Few of these ferns are used as ornamental plants. At the beginning of these, "The bird's-nest ferns (Asplenium nidus L.)” comes.
