Plant Bio

Platycerium spp., or Staghorn Ferns, are different from other ferns in that they are epiphytes, living on trees instead of in the soil, and they are high-light lovers. They have pronounced sporophytes (the stags) and pronounced gametophytes (the shields), and both are separate parts in the staghorn fern’s life cycle. There is little research on, but a lot of confusion with, staghorn fern species. It has been found that many ferns within the genus Platycerium will superficially resemble one another, and that the number of horn/finger projections will vary depending on how much light and water the plant is receiving. Leave the dead shields on the plant, as they help the plant regulate water!
