Care Tips for a Happy Staghorn Fern:

  • Unique Display: Flourishes when mounted on a piece of driftwood, wooden board, or wire frame, mimicking its natural epiphytic habitat. Alternatively, it can be potted in a well-draining medium or displayed in a hanging basket.
  • Light Requirements: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which may scorch the fronds.

  • Wilting Fronds: Indicates underwatering; ensure the fronds receive adequate moisture.
