Platycerium 'Elkhorn' fern




Platycerium 'Elkhorn' fern

Ferns are one of the oldest types of plants on the planet, and they have evolved into an extremely varied family that is found all over the world. The few things that bind ferns together is that, for the most part, they want moist soil, they thrive in more humid climates, and they don't flower. The same lighting and water requirements don't apply to all ferns, so double check their care instructions and pay attention to how it responds to its environment. If you want a beautiful leafy green plant, and you know you love to water frequently, a fern might be a good choice! Elkhorns are one of the ferns that is much happier to dry out about halfway before taking in more water. A happy and healthy elkhorn is beautiful with long, draping leaves that are lobed at the tips.
