- PLANTS + POTS
- ON THE GO
Staghorn Ferns are incredibly popular - and for good reason! They are actual works of art created by nature and meant not to be grown in a pot but mounted to a board or hung in a basket - this best recreates their natural environment where they grow on other trees or plants.
For best care: keep in bright, indirect light. Mist the entire plant and soak the roots about once a week in the warmer months and every 2-3 weeks in the cooler months taking care not to overwater. Staghorn ferns can easily suffer from root rot so be sure it's getting enough drainage during waterings.
If you notice the shield fronds (the round leaves at the base of the plant) are brown - that's okay! This is not a sign that your fern is dying but just part of its life cycle - do not remove the brown & dried shield fronds.
Other notes: spores may grow on the lower parts of the antler fronds (these are the leaves that grow from the center of the plant). Don't remove the spores.
*A commitment to providing the healthiest, happiest plants sometimes requires a special trip to the greenhouse. When choosing specimen we encounter a wide variety of plants all at different stages of maturity. Each plant we source is unique. The plant you receive may be taller, longer or shorter than the one pictured. We photograph the plant that best represents what we most frequently encounter at the greenhouse. Your patience while we hand-pick the best specimen for you is much appreciated. Expect your plant to ship within 5-7 business days.
