Platycerium bifurcatum, aka Staghorn Fern, is native to the rainforests of Java, New Guinea and southeastern Australia. In its natural environment of tropical forests, it grows on tree trunks or rocks, absorbing moisture from the humid air and collecting nutrients from the falling leaves of overhead trees.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Staghorn ferns have two types of fronds: shield fronds and bifurcated (forked) fronds. The former is located at the base of the plant and grow flatly, often appearing dried out or dead (don't fall in to the temptation of removing them). The bifurcated fronds are what the plant gets its common name from, as their forked appearance is reminiscent of deer antlers.

Care Guide

How to take care of Staghorn Fern

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Introducing the Staghorn Fern, a unique and captivating houseplant that teaches us the beauty of adaptability and nurturing relationships.

The Staghorn Fern, scientifically known as Platycerium, is an epiphytic plant that grows on trees in its natural habitat. It boasts distinctive, antler-like fronds that give it a dramatic and eye-catching appearance. This remarkable plant is not only an intriguing addition to your indoor garden but also a symbol of the resilience and strength that can come from adapting to one's environment.

To help your Staghorn Fern flourish, mount it on a wooden plaque or hang it in a basket, mimicking its natural growth habit. This striking plant demonstrates how embracing our unique qualities and adapting to new environments can lead to growth and transformation in our own lives.

When it comes to watering, the Staghorn Fern prefers to be misted or soaked, as it absorbs water through its fronds. Practice mindfulness and balance as you care for your plant, remembering the importance of nurturing relationships, both in plant care and in life.

As your Staghorn Fern grows, it will develop new fronds that continue to expand, creating a stunning display of resilience and adaptability. Like a steadfast companion, the Staghorn Fern stands with you, showcasing the power of growth and adaptation.

Welcome the Staghorn Fern into your home, and let it inspire you with its symbolism of adaptability, resilience, and the importance of nurturing relationships.
