Mounted Moosehorn Fern
Moosehorn ferns are a gorgeous, lesser-known cousin of the staghorn fern. Mounted on rustic wooden boards, their large, round shield-shaped fronds warp around the plant's roots and branch into antler-like foliage from the top of the plaque. A member of the Platycerium genus, these ferns are epiphytic, meaning that in their natural habitats, they grow in the crooks of trees, making them ideal candidates for mounting. These ferns never fail to fascinate those seeing them for the first time, and make a dramatic accent piece in a bright kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, and thrive with periodic misting and a weekly soak.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: When soil at base of plant feels barely moist, place plant under faucet and run the tap so water flows on the board, behind the plant, for about 3-5 minutes
• Considerations: Moosehorn Ferns prefer warm temperatures, high humidity and good air circulation. Reduce watering during winter - black spots on central frond indicates over-watering. For more information, check out the Moosehorn section on our Staghorn Care Guide.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You Mounted Moosehorn Fern will feature a Platycerium grande, mounted to a ~11" x 11" board using a black mesh, which the plant will eventually grow to cover. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos.

Nice so far
It was very hot summer when shipped. I live on east coast of the US. Needed some water and care but is recovering. I was a little concerned with purchasing and shipping a plant at this cost. It looks like it is recovering nicely.
rare and beautiful
Recently took delivery of a moosehorn fern. It proudly adorns a wall in our living area. These are a joy to watch grow, we're eager to applaud new growth. I'll buy another when they are available.
I love her
I've wanted one of these forever and it arrived packaged beautifully. They seemed a bit small at first but I've only had it one the wall a few days but I swear the fronds have grown in size so much already!
