Platycerum Bifurcatum (syn. P. Alcicorne) (Stag’s Horn Fern)
(Polypodiaceae) origin: Australia
Popular for its long antler-shaped leaves, which contrast well with the rather severe lines of contemporary furniture and décor. An epiphytal plant that looks best hanging from a container or piece of bark on a wall. The leaves vary in length from 8 to 15 in. The fern also produces smooth round leaves that fold back to form a cup round the roots. An intermediate plant requiring warmth and a shaded position. When the leaves droop, stand the pot in water and soak the soil well. Do not water again until the leaves droop once more.
