YOU PICKED THIS CUTE PLANT:

Platycerium lemoinei aka Staghorn Fern

Staghorn ferns can typically be found growing in trees and rocky outcroppings in southeast Asia. These ferns over time can become a fun project, since you can cut off "pups" or smaller new ferns to repot or get crafy with a moss or wooden wall holder.

PLANT ORIGINS

Southeast Asia, Australia, east Africa

The Plant Care

Light

Avoid bright light or the leaves will burn just like a pasty human.

Water

Water 1-2 times a week. In order to avoid rot, make sure the soil dries out between waterings.

Extra Love

As your ferns grows, the fronds can get long and floppy, it's okay. Simply prop them up with a stake and get crafty with string.

YOU PICKED THIS CUTE PLANT:

Asplenium nidus aka Bird's Nest Fern

Although native to the dense tropical jungles of southeast Asia, these hardy ferns can thrive indoors and can even be grown outside as far north as Scotland. Australia, east Africa and Hawaii to name a few, Bird’s Nest Bird's Nest Ferns are coincidentally found only growing high up in trees.

PLANT ORIGINS

Southeast Asia

The Plant Care

Light

Medium light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.

Water

Water 1-2 times a week. In order to avoid rot, be sure not to water directly into the rosette.

Extra Love

Like a lot of ferns, as Bird's Nest Ferns age the outer leaves will turn brown, simply trim them off to keep it looking great.

YOU PICKED THIS CUTE PLANT:

Crocodile Fern

Like Paul Hogan and Chris Hemsworth, this fern is from Australia. The veiny crocodile skin-like leaves made naming it easy with it's proper name being: Microsorium musifolium ‘Crocydyllus’. And while it needs some special attention, we find it much easily to care for than domestic ferns.

PLANT ORIGINS

Australia (of course)

The Plant Care

Light

Best suited for low or indirect light - the leaves will burn like a pasty human in direct sunlight.

Water

This plant requires weekly watering but does not like sitting in soggy soil.

Extra Love

Like a lot of ferns (and possibly crocodiles), this plant would love to live in your bathroom where the humidity is a bit higher.
