Staghorn Ferns are relatively low maintenance epiphytes that are gorgeous and versatile to use in home decor. They have two types of leaves - one that looks like antlers of a stag and the others that look like a shield. The shield like fronds cover the base of the plant like a thick shield while the horn like fronds can be seen towards the tip. They love a well-lit humid environment and don't necessarily need soil to grow!

All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Feed the Staghorn plant once a month with a diluted 1:1:1 fertiliser.
Repotting : Repot the Staghorn fern only after the plant has completely filled up the pot and the pot is too small for the plant. Choose a pot that is 2 inches wider in diameter than the previous one.
Propagation : Staghorn ferns can be propagated through spores or offshoots, also called pups. The best method in terms of efforts and success is propagation from pups. In Staghorn ferns that are mature, you will find offshoots in both types of leaf fronds.

Common Problems

3. Why are the leaves of my Stag horn fern wilting?

Style and Decor

Light Requirements : Staghorn ferns are happy in a spot with bright indirect sunlight but they grow happily in medium light to outdoor spots with dappled shade.
Locations :The Staghorn fern can be kept near North or East facing windows or outdoor patios or entryways with dappled shade or indirect light. They also do extremely well in well-lit bathrooms.
Styling/decor tip :If you are an experienced plant parent, mount the Staghorn ferns on a board and hang them as art on your walls. Being epiphytes, Staghorn ferns are perfect for mounting on wooden boards, tree branches and such. When planting in pots, use contrasting planters to highlight the unique fronds and make it the instant focal point of your space. Use them as tabletop arrangements or let them hang from ceilings to add interest to your decor.
