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 Staghorn is planted and grown inside a coconut. As an epiphytic plant it loves growing "on something" making the coconut a perfect home for it. This one does have some basal fronds (the circular leaves that form at the base of the stag horn 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 one of these is slightly different due to its unique growth in a coconut shell 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.

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

Each Coconut Shell has a different size based on the growth and coconut shell it was placed into. If you need exact sizing after placing your order we can message you what we have available for you to select the best fit. 

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

Love at first sight

I sent my Grand Sun 3 plants. The only one he held up, with a big, big smile was this “ Staghorn Fern . . . in Coconut Shell (Elkhorn).” And, it was absolutely beautiful. I don’t know if he will take proper care of this plant, he is 16- years-old, but he loves it to infinity.

Now, I’ll have to get this fern in coconut for my other Grand Sun!
