Staghorn Fern Plaque
These simple, elegant plaques feature a beautiful Staghorn Fern mounted to a diamond-shaped cedar board with sphagnum moss. Staghorn Ferns get their name from the large, bifurcated, antler-like fronds that shoot out dramatically from the center of the plant. These ferns are epiphytes, growing naturally in the crooks of trees, which makes them an ideal candidate for mounting, as they require little root space to thrive. The small size of these plaques make them an ideal choice to liven up small spaces like a sunny kitchen or bedroom. With a built in hook, they hang easily and they look great groups of 2 or more.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: When soil at base of plant feels barely moist, submerge entire mount in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: Staghorn ferns love humidity. Mist your plaque regularly. For more information, check out our Staghorn Care Guide.

Impressive on all levels
Having started out in the plant business - in 1978, I am fully enjoying the resurgence of their popularity! I recently placed my first Pistils order. Knowing that transportation of plants is challenging - especially closing them up in a box and sending them across country. The packing of the items I ordered was brilliant! Very thoroughly considered and executed - everything arrived without a single problem. And, the plants were beautiful and just as described. So often an order like this might arrive much smaller than expected, but not so! Very impressive and I will recommend to friends!
OMG I don't believe it
Well, I purchased two of the giant staghorn mounted ferns. And they are unbelievably lush, gorgeous and healthy. Did I mention they are huge. They arrived in perfect condition - like I had just picked them up from the store. I live in Arizona and it was 110 in Queen Creek today. They weren't stressed from the heat at all. They were superbly packed and just happy as two clams. I wanted to run out the front door and yell THANK YOU! But again, it's 110 and my neighbors probably already think I'm nuts. Anyway, highly recommend Pistils Nursery. They do a spectacular job! Many thanks.
My second staghorn fern was just as beautiful as the first one I received a week earlier. Definitely 5 stars.
