One of the most gorgeous and satisfying plants to watch grow. The Staghorn Fern (sometimes called Elkhorn fern, but those have thinner fronds). These plants are a species of epiphytic ferns that grow in humid or tropical environments. These ferns make for an amazing ornamental adornment for any wall, outside or inside. They do very well in a bathroom due to the higher humidity, so long as there is a good light source.

This one is a slightly more mature Staghorn that is mounted and already developed with some basal fronds (the circular leaves that form at the base of the staghorn that starts out green but may turn brown over time). The Staghorn is mounted on a raw edge piece of cypress wood and attached with Sphagnum moss and fishing wire and nails to create a vertical hanging environment that the stag horns love and thrive in. Each of these is slightly different due to its hand-finished nature and will work well in any room with regular misting. You could hang on your wall for a year or two before requiring a larger space, as these can get rather large over time.

During cold temperatures, please cover or bring it indoors as it is sensitive to freezing temperatures. 

Each piece of wood and Staghorn varies in size but is approximately 8-12inch size in rectangular wood, and some fronds are up to 12 inches long. If you need exact sizing after placing your order, we can message you what we have available for you to select the best fit. 

Staghorn's are used to tropical climates where they receive regular rainwater and humidity. Please ensure water gets thoroughly through the sphagnum moss (if mounted) or around the coconut (if grown inside one) or in the soil at least once a week - drier climates need more. Using spring or rainwater is preferred.

As an epiphytic plant (one that grows on something, like a rock or tree bark), they get nutrients from the air and decomposition of natural material around them. We need to supplement their feeding during the Spring and Summer months, An even liquid fertilizer is preferred, such as a 10:10:10. We also have a slow-release fertilizer basket available that makes adding nutrients easy. Many people like to feed their staghorn with banana peels under the shield leaves as an easy natural and organic feeding solution.

Our plants are shipped from our indoor greenhouse in South Florida. Please note all our plants are one of a kind and if you want to message us we can send you a picture of the exact one you will receive. The product image here is intended to be the best representation of what you can expect to receive but yours may have slightly less or more growth depending on the crop we have when your order is placed. Any lifestyle pictures are meant to demonstrate how a fully grown or more mature plant looks for you to get a sense of it in your space.

Beautiful Staghorn Fern

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife. She used to have a large Staghorn Fern a couple years ago, but lost it when our house was damaged by a tornado. She was very happy to get another Staghorm Fern, no less. It arrived in the mail packed well, healthy, and mounted nicely. My wife is a "Master Gardner" and I can tell you she is very impressed with this particular plant. Ordering was easy and great customer service using your website. Thank you!

Stunning!

Bought this as a bday gift for my hubs, he’s been dying for one of these plants and this one came mounted and packed beautifully. A tiny bit wilted with travel but that was expected. I’d say the plant is perking up nicely. 10/10!!

Christmas in June

It was just like Christmas when that big box of live plants arrived at my door. The plants are beautiful, just like the pictures, only better in person.--- And believe me, Verdant Lyfe has made an art of shipping live plants. Each was carefully wrapped, first in a soft wet cover to keep them moist, then in paper and thick large bubble wrap. They were placed in the box so that each plant would not disturb the other, even pieces of soft stuffing in between. I was so impressed. You have a customer for life. --- And Thanks so much for the surprise gift bag. It is a most useful and pretty gift.-- I highly recommend your company to anyone seeking gorgeous plants and perfect customer service. Can't wait to enjoy them all.
