Staghorn Fern - The Stag

The Staghorn Fern gets its name from its long, forked fronds that are said to resemble a stag’s antlers. Cool, right? 

Where does it come from?

The Staghorn Fern grows in the tropical rainforests of Australia, New Guinea, South America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. 

Plant Care Tips: Staghorn Fern

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing your plant to full sun as it can scorch the leaves. 
  • Water: We recommend watering your Staghorn Fern from the bottom up. Leave it to soak in your bathtub or sink for 10-20 minutes and allow it to drip dry before returning it to its decorative pot. This should be done around once a week during summer and once every two weeks during winter. 
  • Temperature and Humidity: As a tropical plant, the Staghorn Fern thrives in humid conditions. We recommend keeping it at temperatures of 16-24°C and misting it regularly. You can also place it in your bathroom or conservatory for extra humidity.
  • Fertilizer: Feed occasionally using a well-balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring to summer). 
  • Propagation: The most common way to propagate the Staghorn Fern is through division. 

Pets: The Staghorn Fern is non-toxic and safe around pets and children.

Staghorn Fern - Common Issues and Questions 

Why does my Staghorn Fern have brown edges?

Brown edges can be a result of dry air. If your plant is positioned in a draughty area or near a heat source, try moving it to a better location. Your plant may also develop brown edges as a result of inconsistent watering. Remember to stick to a regular watering regime - the Staghorn Fern needs a good soak once a week or once a fortnight depending on the time of year.

My plant is growing new fronds, but they are really small. Am I doing something wrong? 

If you find that your Staghorn Fern is growing unusually small fronds, it’s time to reevaluate its environment. Is your plant positioned in a sunny enough area? Is it getting the right amount of humidity? These are all things to consider if you want your Fern to grow properly. 

Common pests: The Staghorn Fern is prone to common pests such as mealybugs, scale, and aphids. Be sure to check for pests regularly as they can kill your plant. Try treating pests with insecticidal soap.

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
