We advise you to purchase a so-called "heat pack" for areas where it freezes in Winter. A heat pack protects your plant(s) from freezing during transit. One heat pack protects up to 4 plants in one shipping carton. (a heat pack doesn't add weight to the total order!)

Add a Heat Pack to Your Order Here.

For the Northern States where temperatures drop below 50°F (also & especially at night), we recommend adding a Heat Pack to your houseplant order. (November - April). This way you can be sure that your plants will arrive in good condition.

One heat pack is enough to ship up to 4 houseplants in one shipping box and releases its heat for over 72 hours of transit time.

  • 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.

 

Care: 

  • Light: Give your Ferns a position near a window that gets morning or late afternoon sun, and keep the Ferns away from strong sunlight, especially during the summer. Direct sunlight will make them lose their leaves or turn their fronds yellow. You can keep your Ferns in dim light as long as you give them regular breaks in bright light. They can be given artificial light, but this should be from a special gardening bulb or a fluorescent strip. Ordinary light bulbs generate too much heat.
  • Pet FriendlyYes most are, however the Asparagus Fern and Fern 'Sprengeri' are NOT pet friendly
  • Water: Most Ferns like evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants. Bushy Ferns can be difficult to water. Try using a watering can with a long spout to direct the water to the center of the plant. Water generously, until it drains out of the bottom of the pot.
  • HumidityHigh
  • Temperature: An individual Fern’s place of origin and adaptability will determine how high or low temperature the fern needs. Most Ferns don’t like cold. Those Ferns from tropical regions truly appreciate 60°-70° F. Those from more temperate regions enjoy temperatures between 50°-60°F.
  • Difficult Level: Easy
