Staghorn Fern



Staghorn ferns have an out-of-this-world appearance. The plants have two types of leaves, one of which resembles the horns of a large herbivore.

This plant grows outdoors in warm season locations and indoors elsewhere. Mounted or in a basket is how to grow a staghorn fern, because they are epiphytic, growing in trees generally. The fern has antler-like foliage as well as a flat basal leaf.

They overlap onto a mounting surface and provide stability for the fern. The foliar fronds may droop or be erect, depending upon the variety of fern.

Planting And Care

Water a plant when the soil feels dry to touch. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering for the winter & rainy season.

Try to water the plants in the morning around 8-10 am.

You should remove dead, infected, or damaged plant parts and throw them in the garbage collector.

You should prune and fertilize a plant mostly in the spring season.

When a plant grows beyond its limit and pot size does not provide enough space for the spread of roots, re-pot with fresh soil and some fertilizer.

While repotting, try not to disturb the roots. Avoid any drastic change in the provided environment otherwise, the plants may get stress/shock.
