17” Stag Horn Fern

1,030.00


Staghorns ferns are among the most uncommon plants out there. A native of the Pacific islands of Java, New Guinea and parts of eastern Australia it’s an epiphyte that loves wet, humid conditions in and around rain forests. New horn like grey-green fronds (leaves) grow out of its heart shaped brown sterile pods that form at the base of the plant. These brown pods have developed a lacy root-like structure with which the fern attaches itself to trunks of trees, high up the canopy.

Staghorn Fern

Look at a Staghorn fern and you start to worry how on earth are you going to care for this unique specimen. However, for most of us who live in the tropics nurturing this eye-catching specimen is easier than expected. If you are able to afford it the right amount of humidity you will have a happy, healthy centrepiece in your collection.

Adopting and caring for Staghorn Fern

Adopting: Adding a unique, well-grown Staghorn Fern is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed fronds.
Locating: Direct sun or overly bright light can bleach or burn the leaves of a Staghorn. So any area that offers filtered light is best for these plants. Finding a bright, airy spot to mount this unique species so that they have space to spread out is a way to support its grwoth and well being.
Potting: Ferns need rich, well-drained soil that has been fortified with organic material. So it is ideal to mix good quantities of compost into the potting mix. A blend of coco-peat, compost, and river sand in a 30:50:20 ratio should help your Fern to do well.
Watering: Ferns demand regular watering and misting. Once mounted there is little chance of the plant encountering waterlogged conditions.
Fertilising: If you have a good base mixture and your plants are looking bushy and healthy, you can skip the fertilising entirely. However, if you are keen to feed them, use an organic liquid fertiliser. If you are using a chemical mix, dilute them to have the prescribed strength and fertilise them once a month or so. Ensure that the chemicals don’t come in contact with the leaves.
