Description

Platycerium bifurcatum is also known as the Elkhorn fern. It is an epiphytic fern meaning it can grow on another plant or object with no need for soil. Native to Southeast Asia, Polynesia and subtropical Australia she is accustomed to moist, rainforest environments so keep her in a nice shaded spot and consistently moist but not sopping wet. If they get low to medium light and moderate moisture, they will thrive.

Whether grown indoors or outside, provide moderate moisture and humus-rich soil. Outdoor plants should be located in partial shade or low light conditions for the best growth, while indoor plants need bright indirect light.
 

This interesting fern has architectural striking fronds that are light green/greyish in colour and feel like velvet to touch. The distinct fertile fronds look like the forked antlers of an elk hence the nickname Elkhorn.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I’m a show-off talking piece so bring me indoors or make sure people can see me in your garden

    I grow to: I’ll reach 90cms tall and 80cms

    Where to place me: I love light shade to full shade

    How far to space me: Give me 100cms of space to stretch out my prongs

    Soil Conditions: I need very well-drained soil or a piece of wood for grip

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • I am currently 30cm tall in a 125mm nursery pot 

  • Growing
  • They do need regular watering, especially in dry conditions. A good soaking once a week during warm weather is needed, hold back a bit in cooler weather. Ensure that the plant is not allowed to dry out and keep moist. When she grows up you might want to transplant her from a pot to a bit of wood where you can mount her in sphagnum moss to help replicate her most natural environment.  

     

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and fast, free delivery to your door
