Description for Staghorn Fern

The plants grow 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. Staghorn fern care relies on careful light, temperature and moisture monitoring.

Winter hardy to USDA Zone 9-12. In St. Louis, grow indoors in a warm, humid environment in bright indirect light including up to several hours of filtered sun. Avoid full sun. For upright display, tie rootball to a corkboard or slab of bark with insertion of peat moss around the crown.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Platycerium bifurcatum Green Non-flowering 2.00 to 3.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

Though you can find young staghorn ferns sold in pots, mature plants need to be mounted to a board or hung in a hanging basket. Why? Because, like air plants, staghorn ferns are epiphytic plants, which means that in they grow on other plants or trees in their natural growing environments.
In the tropics (and even warmer parts of the US like Florida), staghorn ferns grow to truly massive proportions, jutting dramatically out of the crooks of trees. Their roots hold them in place, and they absorb water and nutrients through their fronds.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Part shade well-drained soil Medium 30F Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Staghorn Fern

    Use a spray-bottle that emits a fine, ambient mist, such as a brass mister. Mist the entire plant, focusing on the underside of the antler fronds and the shield fronds.

Typical uses of Staghorn Fern

Special features: Roots must never be allowed to dry out. Occasionally immerse entire root ball (not the fertile fronds) in water for several minutes and then drain.

Culinary use: Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer (ratio of 1:1:1).

Ornamental use: A hanging fern makes a great ornamental adornment for any large tree or wall in the garden. For a substrate, most simply use a flat board

Medicinal use: na
