How do you care for a staghorn fern?

I need to care for my staghorn fern.


Answer by  tacmedic (34)

You only need some spagnum moss to grow your fern. The easiest thing to do is to set your fern on a board on a pile of the moss and secure it with a wire. Water only enough to keep the moss damp and spongy.

These plants need bright light, so place it near a window. Water twice weekly, and try to get water to the center of plant. Mist during low humidity.

Plant the fern in a hanging pot with a clump of phagnum moss underneath it. Hang in a shaded area and water it only when the moss is dry.

The best care for your staghorn fern is to avoid bright direct light. Make sure you fertilize with a fish based fertilizerm, and water the staghorn fern only once a week to avoid over watering.
