Staghorn Ferns get the name from their resemblance to deer antlers. Their natural architectural look, ease of care, combined with how great they look mounted, make them a unique and sought after specimen. You will often see them mounted on a sphagnum covered wood plaque but they can also stay potted in well draining soil.
Light: In nature, Staghorn usually grow high up in the branches of the trees; thus, they thrive in bright light, but never direct sun. Emulate the light of the forest floor and your plant will be most happy.
Water: During the spring and summer give your Staghorn enough water at every watering to make the potting mixture thoroughly moist, but allow the potting mixture to dry out almost completely before watering again. During the rest period, in the fall and winter water these ferns much more sparingly than in the growing period, giving only enough water to make the mixture barely moist throughout.
Non-toxic to people and pets.
