Common Staghorn Fern

Platycerium bifurcatum


My staghorn fern is looking amazing about this time of year, I was worried the winter would kill it but it held up. Staghorn ferns are native to Java, Australia, New Guinea, and NSW. They are epiphytes (which means they grow on other material other than soil), commonly found on trees in rainforests.


Native to Java, Australia, New Guinea, and NSW. They've been cultivated and are a very popular houseplant in many parts of the world.
