Staghorn Fern got its name from the antler-like, green, and leathery leaves. It’s one of the most unusual yet beautiful houseplants that add a tropical look in your space. Just hang it in baskets or place it on branches, and this famed fern will do a stunning job. With the right care and conditions, Staghorn Fern gives a striking display of cascading fronds. Each plant features two types of fronds: small and flat basal fronds, and upright aerial fronds.
Tropical plants grow naturally in tropical areas where the climate is hot and humid. Easy to grow indoors, these plants add an exotic flair to your home with a vivid display of striking blooms and attractive foliage.
These are the perfect plants to keep in your home, even if you have curious pets that chew on almost everything – including plants. They are safe and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about your plants poisoning your cats and dogs.
These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.
Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.
