18 Platycerium "Netherlands" Staghorn Fern

Staghorn Ferns can be grown indoors or outdoors in shade or semi shade. They are excellent specimens for hanging baskets. They can also be attached to ornamental pieces of driftwood or placed in the crook of large trees.

As a houseplant it is easy, but slow growing, which makes for effortless ownership. Watering is only required when the potting mix has almost completely dried out, and the most effective method is to dunk the pot in a bucket of water for a few minutes to properly soak it. It requires bright, filtered light and good amounts of humidity to properly thrive. Its ideal location could be hanging or wall mounted in a warm bright bathroom.

Plants are in 15cm pots and sent ex open ground. Photo is of the actual size of the plants.

They require a lot of sun to flower well but can be planted in semi or dappled shade but then the flowering is less. The rhizome must be covered by 3-7cm of soil. Water very well.  Louisiana Irises love water and can be grown in boggy areas and in pots in ponds.
