Platycerium is commonly called Staghorn or Elkhorn Fern due to their weirdly wonderful, unique, antler shaped leaves. They make fascinating specimen houseplants and look particularly effective as a hanging plant in a kokedama or wall-mounted in a wood display.
Not edible. Non-toxic if accidentally ingested.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight as it may scorch the leaves.
Water: Allow the soil to begin to dry out before watering. Is best to water from below rather directly onto the leaves. Dunk the plant in tepid water for 10-15 minutes (less in winter) and ensure there is adequate drainage. Don’t leave the plant sitting in water continually.
