Bird's Nest Ferns

Birds Nest Fern added on March 17, 2018 | Answered

I have had (and lost) several birds nest fern plants. It seems that eventually they each succumbed to a slow sad death as I noticed and watched as the inner nest with the egg looking fronds darkened, dried, and eventually turned black. Due to the lack of new life ( the "eggs")being snuffed before they actually became leaves the whole plant then slowly died off. How can I prevent the death of the inner nest or "eggs". And is there any way of saving one who's inner nest is currently dead looking.
