Grow in bright, indirect light with a couple hours of morning sun each day.
Plant in an all-purpose potting soil or mount on a board or piece of bark using a 1:1 mix of potting soil and bonsai mix. Secure with sphagnum or sheet moss.
To water a mounted Staghorn, take the fern down and thoroughly soak in a bowl or sink. Let drain and dry before returning to its location. In summer, water every week. In winter, every couple weeks is usually just fine.
Fertilize every 2 weeks during active growth. Cut fertilizer strength and frequency in half October - March.
tips and troubleshooting
Small Staghorn ferns may be available potted in soil, but more mature plants must be mounted to truly thrive.
