Plant Size Chart

The Platycerium Bifurcatum, commonly known as the Staghorn Fern, is a Type 5 plant. This unique epiphytic fern is admired for its distinctive fronds, which resemble the antlers of a stag. The Staghorn Fern's two types of fronds – fertile fronds that extend outward and sterile fronds that form a flat base – create a visually striking display, making it a popular choice for mounting on wooden plaques or hanging in baskets.

Good to Know

  • Light: Prefers cooler spots with lower light levels or dappled shade. Can thrive in brighter spots away from direct sunlight.
  • Water: Likes consistent moisture. Water thoroughly to keep the root ball moist, but ensure good air circulation to prevent rot.

  • Temperature: Prefers a cool to moderate temperature range. Avoid placing near heat sources or in cold drafts.
  • Humidity: Enjoys high humidity. Consider misting regularly or placing in a naturally humid environment like a bathroom.
  • Growth: Slow to moderate growth rate, with fronds that can become quite large and visually impactful over time.
  • Origin: Native to tropical and subtropical regions, known for its unique growth habit and ornamental appeal.
