A nice compact form of Staghorn fern. Great for temporarily growing in large vivariums, terrariums and for mounting. Makes a wonderful patio plant and grows amazingly well outdoors from late spring through early fall in most climates. Can be grown outdoors all year round in zones 9-10.
Note: The large round flat area of green at the base of the plant is called the shield frond. They are bright green when new and freshly grown, however, it is a normal process for them to turn brown and stiff as the plan ages. During this process, many, many layers of the shield fronds will end up covering anything that it started to grow on. Mature specimens are an amazement for all to behold!
