Important Details

Light- Intermediate

Staghorn Ferns prefer bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as it can scorch the leaves. Place your Staghorn Fern near a window that receives bright but filtered light, or under a shaded outdoor area.

Water- Intermediate

Staghorn Ferns are unique in that they are epiphytic, meaning they grow on other plants and trees rather than in soil. Therefore, they require a different watering approach. Mist the leaves and root ball with water frequently to keep them moist, but not soaking wet. You can also soak the entire plant in water for a few hours every few weeks to ensure it is hydrated.

Soil- Beginner

Since Staghorn Ferns do not grow in soil, there is no need to worry about soil quality or type. Instead, they are mounted onto a board, hung in a basket or pot, or attached to a piece of wood or bark. The mounting material should be kept moist, but not too wet, to allow the fern to absorb moisture and nutrients.
