- Common Names: Staghorn Fern
Maximum Height: 1 m (Indoors)
The Staghorn Fern is an unusual plant, being both an air plant and a fern. Staghorn Fern is epiphytic, which means that they grow on other plants or trees in their natural growing environments using their roots to hold them in place, and absorb water and nutrients through their fronds.
Light: Grows best in bright indirect sunlight.
Water: Mist the underside of the fronds or run water through its root ball until it is fully saturated once per week.
If the antler fronds begin to brown or blacken at the base, this is a sign of over-watering. Reduce watering to once monthly until plant shows sign of recovery.
Fertilizing: Fertilize them once per month with a 1:1:1 ration fertilizer diluted in water.
