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!

Looked amazing out of the box.

I was so happy with the fern. Looks absolutely happy the day it arrived. It was still moist so I waited a couple days to water it. Came with a small care instruction card. I am hoping to mount it eventually, but I will let it grow some more first.

Lovely size

I love my new staghorn fern...all the leaves were intact on arrival (although a few looked like some damage was clipped off - no worries). It's a great size for a 6" plant and even had some baby leaves starting too. The included care card was helpful. My late uncle had an enormous staghorn hanging from a tree...I hope mine gets to be that big someday!

Beautiful

The staghorn fern arrived in great shape! I live in Las Vegas so I was very concerned.
