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. 

Last image shows the plant when it is more mature and grows side hanging. As an epiphyte it doesn't need soil to grow, ideally needs to be hung for best results to achieve the final picture. Needs some humidity to do well. 

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it. 
  • Mounted Wood - We use reclaimed wood, recycled burlap coffee bags, and some sphagnum moss to create a vertical hanging environment that the stag horns love and thrive in. Each one of these is slightly different due to its hand finished nature and will work well in any room with regular misting. Would be able to hang on your wall for a year or two before requiring a larger space as these can get rather large over time.

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.
