Staghorn Fern

Staghorn ferns are so called because of their attractive horn shaped fronds. They are epiphytic plants that naturally grow in the crevices of trees in the rainforest and adapt well to being grown in these moss planters where the roots are able to draw moisture from the air.

This striking fern is a great easy going variety and has been planted into a traditional Kokodema planter so it can hung up anywhere within the home.

These ferns naturally grow in the rainforest and absorb water and nutrients through their aerial roots so work particularly well suspended in this way. Because they are plants of the forest they prefer to be in a bright spot but out of direct sunlight so choose a spot away from a window. They are tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and low light levels so can be hung in a variety of positions. If you prefer you can remove the string and place the planter on a table top instead.

How often you need to water will depend on the room conditions. In a damp room like a kitchen or bathroom they can absorb a lot of water through their roots without watering. If the room is not particularly damp you will need to soak the moss ball in water every couple of weeks or so to ensure your fern has enough water reaching the roots.

These staghorn ferns have 2 types of leaves the dramatic ‘antler’ like fronds and the papery dry leaves that form at the base. They don’t form flowers but under the right conditions they will produce young ‘pups’ at the base of the plant which can be cut off the mother plant with a sharp knife and grown on as a new plant.
