Native to Java, New Guinea and Eastern Australia, this epiphytic fern is comprised of two types of leaves, the sterile and the fertile fronds. Fertile fronds are long, forked and strap-like, reaching lengths of 90cm, and the heart shaped infertile fronds become an overlapping brown 'basket' holding the plant in place.
For such exotic looks, they are surprisingly easy care, needing little more than bright, indirect light and regular watering. (Allow some drying of the plant between waterings)
Tip: A banana peel dropped into a watering can will provide the plant with a potassium boost and act as a fertilizer.
With the right conditions, Stag Horn ferns can last for decades!
