10 baby Staghorn ferns (platycerium bifurcatum) right out of the grow tray.
The plants are from tissue culture. The leaves are approximately 3 inches long and they are growing fast. This is the Netherlands variety, said to be slightly more tolerant of cold.
We will ship as plugs, ready for you to pot up or mount. But please note that we can't ship to you if the daytime highs at your location are near or below freezing. These plants are VERY tropical and they will die if they freeze.
Staghorns are epiphytic ferns that grow naturally on bark or tree branches. They have two different types of fronds. One grows outward from the base giving it its name (Staghorn) and another that cups the area where it's rooted.
These are easy to grow. Keep them somewhat moist, especially if mounted. Provide bright light but no direct sun, especially at this baby stage. Keep between 55 and 85 degrees. Fertilize once a week, with a weak, well balanced fertilizer. This is the Netherlands variety, said to be slightly more cold hardy.
These will come to you as plugs, right out of the grow tray and we recommend mounting them by wrapping the plug in sphagnum moss and attaching to a wooden or ceramic mount with strips of old panty hose. Alternatively, you can plant in pots of peat moss mixed with a little potting soil.
They can get quite large, as evidenced by the second picture.

Very nice starts! Were larger than I was expecting. Arrived quickly and very well wrapped and protected from the cold. I had fun playing with them and mounted several on bark with moss. Beautiful!
