- Botanical Name: Platycerium bifurcatum.
- Common Name(s): Staghorn fern, Elkhorn fern.
- Description: Native to Java and southeastern Australia, the Birds Nest 'Staghorn' fern has a fuzzy texture to the leaves that can get very large if taken care of. The name bifurcatum means forked, referring to the leaves that split and resemble stag or elk horns. It can grow up to 31-35 in tall and wide, and care is easy as long as they're provided with low to medium light and moderate moisture like most ferns.
How To Take Care Of Your Fern
Ferns enjoy low light environments. Keep them out of direct sunlight.
Water your fern thoroughly when the top 3 inches of its soil are dry.
Ferns are generally non-toxic to pets.
