5 baby Staghorn ferns (platycerium bifurcatum) Netherlands
Easy to grow, instructions included
These plants are from tissue culture. The leaves are 3 to 4 inches long and they are growing fast.
This is the Netherlands variety, said to be slightly more cold hardy than regular staghorns. The leaves develop longer prongs. The picture shows the plugs in the grow tray.
We will ship as small plugs, ready for you to pot up or mount.
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.
Note that the prongs don't develop until the plants are more mature.
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.
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.
