These plants are from tissue culture. The leaves are approximately 4 to 5 inches long and they are growing fast.

This is the French variety, although it's actually native to Australia. More drought tolerant than most staghorns. The leaves are silvery and have a velvet feel to them.

In the wild these grow on sun-exposed boulders and rocks and are heat loving. In its native location it has to survive droughts of 2 months or more without rain. As with many drought tolerant plants its foliage has soft, waxy hairs that protect it and give it the silvery look. It should be watered sparingly in winter. Excellent on plaques and in wooden or wire baskets.

The leaves develop longer prongs than standard staghorns.

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 between 55 and 85 degrees. Morning sun is OK. Fertilize once every two weeks or so with a weak, well balanced fertilizer.

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. Be advised, they can get quite large, with leaves up to two feet long.
