Platycerium are 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 once the fronds get long enough to start trailing.


  • Platycerium bifurcatum prefers bright, indirect light. Find the brightest spot you have for the best results - however avoid exposing your plant to direct sunlight as this will scorch the plant.
  • Due to the hard shield leaves covering the root ball, it is best to water from below. Dunk in water for 10-15 mins (less in winter) and ensure there is adequate drainage. Allow the soil to begin to dry-out before watering. Don't let it stand in water continually.
  • The Common Staghorn Fern thrives in normal household temperatures: between 16-24°C. Try to always keep your plant above 12°C at the very minimum. Avoid cold draughts.
  • These ferns prefer higher humidity levels where possible. Mist regularly. Ideal plants for kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Liquid fertiliser can be applied occasionally during the growing season. 
  • The Staghon Fern is a slow-growing plant and typically reaches an ultimate height of around 0.5 to 1 metre.
  • The Staghorn Fern is considered non-toxic. Safe around children and animals.
