Platycerium bifurcatum, Platycerium alcicorne, Elkhorn Fern, Staghorn

Click to see full-size image Platycerium bifurcatum, Platycerium alcicorne
Family: Polypodiaceae
Elkhorn Fern, Staghorn
Origin: Australia and New Guinea
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterOrnamental foliage

It is able to grow in a variety of habitats from high in the trees of the rainforest to areas of swamp and open forest. It often grows in large masses on boulders and rock faces in New South Wales, and on trees in Queensland. Platycerium bifurcatum need bright indirect light. New divisions should be misted daily to keep the humidity levels high. Once they are established, the ferns are fairly drought tolerant and should be watered at least twice a week during the growing season. Fertilize on a monthly basis for established ferns. During the winter rest period, water only enough to keep the fronds from wilting. Too much water in winter causes spotting of the fronds.

SIMILAR SPECIES: Platycerium coronarium has fertile leaves forked up to 7x (vs. forked to 5x), and sporangia on rounded or kidney-shaped lobes (vs. on terminal tapering lobes).

Platycerium sp., Staghorn

Click to see full-size image Platycerium sp.
Family: Polypodiaceae
Staghorn
Origin: Tropical areas of South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Guinea
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Ferns in this genus are widely known as Staghorn or Elkhorn ferns due to their uniquely-shaped fronds. Platycerium sporophytes (adult plants) have tufted roots growing from a short rhizome that bears two types of fronds, basal and fertile fronds. Basal fronds are sterile, shield or kidney shaped and laminate against the tree and protect the fern's roots from damage and dessication. In some Platycerium species the top margin of these fronds forms an open crown of lobes and thereby catches falling forest litter and water. Fertile fronds bear spores on their undersurface, are dichotomous or antler shaped and jut out or hang from the rhizome.
