Platycerium sp - Staghorn Fern

$ 12.00

Platycerium¬†species are¬†nicknamed Staghorn Ferns (or Elkhorn Ferns) for good reason ‚Ästtheir 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

‚Äʬ†Light: Place in bright, indirect light
‚Äʬ†Water:¬†Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
‚Äʬ†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!
