THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND LISTING


Platycerium superbum *Staghorn Fern*


Staghorn ferns are best suited for growing outdoors in warm climates, sunrooms or greenhouses. In nature, these epiphytes grow in trees where leaf debris collects but drains freely. This species is one of the largest growing that produces a single crown (mean non-clumping habit).  The sterile fronds are upright creating a crown, and can reach several feet high on mature specimens.  The fertile fronds are pendant and deeply lobed for a 'many antlered' look.   Native to Eastern Australia and hard to find!


Care Suggestions: Allow media to dry between watering to avoid root rot. Fertilize lightly once per month. Bright indirect light is best. Generally prefers temperatures of 55° or above but mature plants can tolerate short dips in the 40’s without damage.


We are offering a limited run of plants grown from spores in our greenhouses.  These are currently in 6" plastic pots but after they have gained sized can be moved to hanging mounts or containers for long term growing.


 Pricing on this item is Net, and no further discounts or Promo Codes apply.  Actual Cost of Shipping will be added.
