Platycerium sp - Staghorn Fern

$ 25.00

Platycerium species are nicknamed Staghorn Ferns (or Elkhorn Ferns) for good reason – their elongated, forked fronds look just like antlers. As it matures, your staghorn fern will also grow shield fronds - round, plate-like leaves that eventually dry to form a protective layer around the roots of the plant. Staghorn ferns are epiphytes (plants that grow on other plants or trees), making them a popular choice for mounting. Whether you decide to mount your staghorn fern or grow it terrestrially in a pot, Platycerium species makes an excellent houseplants that thrive in small spaces. 

Plant Care

 Light: Place in bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Staghorn ferns like high humidity and grow best in warm temperatures; mist the foliage regularly. As epiphytes, they also are good candidates for mounting. Pet friendly!
