Platycerium bifurcatum - 'Staghorn Fern'
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright indirect light but can survive in medium light conditions. Avoid placing in direct light that can burn and bleach the leaves.
Watering: (If mounted) mist leaves and fronds every few days, soak the whole plant every week during hot/dry weather and every second week during cool/humid weather. (If potted) allow the soil to dry, then give a good watering.
Humidity: Medium to high humidity levels is ideal.
Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature of 15C+.
Soil/Nutrients: Regular tropical soil mix. Although fertilizer is not necessary for plants with sufficient soil minerals. You can help enhance growth and overall plant health by using fertilizer during active growing times. Aim to repot during active growing times.
Sizing: Multiple sizes available.
Good to know: Plants that have just been shipped will be stressed, they may not look as beautiful as the picture and will need time to bounce back. How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
