Platycerium Bifurcatum "Staghorn Fern"


Ferns are listed under the Moisture Loving Tropicals section in the Jungle & Loom Plant Care Card. Place these ferns in medium to bright indirect light, but away from direct sun.  Unlike most houseplants they don't like for their soil to dry out in between waterings.  Ferns like to be moist throughout but not waterlogged.  

Staghorn Ferns get their name from the large, bifurcated, antler-looking fronds that shoot out from the center of the plant. In nature these plants are epiphytes, which means they grow attached to trees without soil.
