In tropical areas, staghorn ferns grow to truly massive proportions, jutting dramatically out of the crooks of trees. Their roots hold them in place, and they absorb water and nutrients through their fronds. When young they can easily live in small pots but as they grow older it is recommended to mount them on a board or have them growing in a coconut coir hanging basket. They produce two types of 'leaves' - the tall ones that protrude from the plant known as antler fronds and the round, hard ones that cover the roots called shield fronds. This makes for an interesting and unique plant.
Please note: The purchased plant may vary from the product image. Plants are living, breathing things – no two are exactly alike, there can be variations in colour, variegation, growth, and maturity.
