Platycerium grande - Moosehorn Fern
Platycerium grande, also called Moosehorn Fern, is closely related to the Staghorn Fern. This species is special because its shield fronds are the main attraction! Wide, round, fuzzy fronds grow flat to the growing medium and develop arching "antlers" as the plant matures. Don't be worried if you notice a little brown on the older fronds! As new fronds cover the older ones, it is normal for the older leaves turn brown.
• Light: Place in bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top half 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! More information on our Staghorn Fern Care Guide!
