Elk Horn Fern

(3 customer reviews)


“Platycerium bifurcatum”

I like this chap. Because it’s called Elk, but also because it’s pretty amazing. The antler shaped leaves are furry in texture. Once the fronds get long enough these look so great in a hanging planter or you can mount them onto a board and have an animal friendly version of antlers on your wall. Now who doesn’t want that?!

(A favourite of the littlest Forrest who insisted on being in the pictures with it!)

Light : Bright indirect light will be best for this fern. 

Water: Try watering your fern once a week in the warmer months and once every 2 / 3 weeks when it’s cooler

Humidity: Misting is great for your Elk horn – focus misting on the underside of the fronds. He will also love to be anywhere that is humid, so in the bathroom or hanging out with other plants. Because he will absorb moisture through his fronds if you keep him extra humid you wont need to water him as much. 

Temperature: He is pretty cold hardy but would prefer to be in an ambient temperature. 

Food:  You can feed you Fern monthly in the spring and summer months. 

Toxicity:  Your Elk Horn Fern  is non toxic for any little critters running about your house! 

Dimensions 12 × 30 cm

Brown/ black  fronds mean he’s being overwatered. Reduce to monthly watering to help him recover. 

If the tips of the fronds brown or the fronds wilt then he needs more water.
