The Elkhorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum), also known as the Staghorn Fern, is named after its large fronds that look like Elk horns. A truly spectacular looking fern that despite it’s exotic appearance is very easy to grow. Attaches well to trunks of other trees and ferns, and can be mounted on a block or in a hanging basket.
Elk horns are so great for weekend creative ideas they happily mount to man ferns, trees, timber (do make sure you research the best way to do this) super easy and in the right conditions they grow really big into growing works of art in doors or out!
A light shade position with patches of sunlight is recommended. Will cope with light frosts but will need protection in colder areas. Good drainage is essential but like all ferns, does need regular watering, especially in dry conditions.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be very hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
Plant Shipping - WE CANNOT SHIP PLANTS OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA!!!
- Flat Rate $20 shipping for plants within Australia, this for example would cover say 2 x 130mm plants that we bare root and can fit in a small satchel. Note, for much bigger plants we may need to charge a little more than the $20 and this would be on a case-by-case basis with our aim to ship for the least amount possible. You may choose to cancel the order should shipping not be acceptable to you.
Please select $20 Plant Shipping at checkout.
Note: Plants shipped to mainland Australia will arrive bare rooted.
We CAN NOT ship plants to WA.
*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team email@example.com and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
