Platycerium sp - Staghorn Fern

$ 12.00
Size

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!

Love this guy!

This was my first Pistil’s purchase. It came a little late (not by any fault of Pistil’s) but was so carefully and lovingly packaged that no harm was done. Very precious fern.

Arrived healthy

Hands down the best plant packaging I’ve had for any plant I’ve ordered online. Arrived healthy and in great shape. Not repotting yet but sure that the soil is great for this plant. Only complaint is that I didn’t order the wall mounted version and Pistil’s doesn’t sell the supplies to DIY a wall mount.
