Staghorn Fern


Category: Tag:


I’m the Staghorn Fern. I am a little bit more picky in terms of care compared to other houseplants but my appearance will amaze your friends without a doubt. I’m versatile and can be styled in so many ways: potted on a table, mounted and hung on the wall, or placed in a basket. A fun fact about me is that I don’t need any soil to grow and can cling to tree trunks or other platforms.

Staghorn Fern Plant Information:

🌱 Care Level – Moderate: Requires attention to humidity and light but is generally manageable.

🐾 Pet-Friendly – Safe: Non-toxic to pets. A good choice for households with animals.

☀️ Light – Bright, Indirect Light: Prefers shaded light similar to its natural rainforest habitat. Avoid direct sunlight.

💧 Water – Consistent Moisture: Water when the base of the fern feels dry. Overwatering can be detrimental.

🌫️ Humidity – High Humidity: Thrives in high humidity environments. Mist regularly or place in a humid room.

🌡️ Temperature – Tropical Temperatures: Prefers warm environments, ideally between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C).
