Elkhorn fern
Platycerium bifurcatum is available at
Plant Care Instructions By Ken Andersen

Platycerium is the family of ferns we know as \'Stag Horn Ferns\'. They are native to different parts of the world, mostly Australia, Africa, South America, New Guinea and Southeast Asia. Most are quite easy to grow in southern California, requiring only a little extra care. Most people grow them on boards of Cedar or Redwood. These ferns will usually grow well if placed in an area with part shade most of the day. A little \'full sun\' is usually OK for just an hour or two, but if they get too much sun their leaves may be a little yellow, a lot of sun will burn the leaves. As you get further inland, and thus into hotter and dryer weather, they will require more shade.

    • Fertilize

        We recommend using "GroPower Tablets" about 4 times a year to fertilize them, to make the plant grow faster and have larger fronds. Regular "GroPower" works well also, but you should probably apply it more often, perhaps monthly for best results. They can live a long time without any plant food, but the fronds will be smaller and lighter green. They just look a lot better with regular feeding. In the wild, they are primarily fed with bird droppings when they grow in the trees.

    • Water

        Keep them moist, but not wet all of the time. Give them a good watering with a hose or sprinkler if rains don't provide enough water; let them dry out some before the next irrigation. If you keep them constantly wet, the 'shield fronds' will turn dark brown or black and the plant will not do well.

    • Protect

        Protect from frost during colder months.

    • Propagate

        Dividing them is the easiest and fastest way to propagate new plants. In our opinion you can divide them any time of the year, but the best time is in the growing season (April through the end of summer) and if they are divided then they seem to take right off. If you do it when it is cold, you don't see much activity for a few months until the weather warms some. I think almost all divisions will survive no matter when they are done, if they get decent sized pieces. If they are too small, they may not survive the colder months.

                  Keep them moist, but not wet all of the time. Give them a good watering with a hose or sprinkler if rains don\'t provide enough water; let them dry out some before the next irrigation. If you keep them constantly wet, the \'shield fronds\' will turn dark brown or black and the plant will not do well.

                      Protect from too much direct sun. These ferns will usually grow well if placed in an area with part shade most of the day. A little \'full sun\' is usually OK for just an hour or two, but if they get too much sun their leaves may be a little yellow, a lot of sun will burn the leaves. As you get further inland, and thus into hotter and dryer weather, they will require more shade.

                            Dividing them is the easiest and fastest way to propagate new plants. In our opinion you can divide them any time of the year, but the best time is in the growing season (April through the end of summer) and if they are divided then they seem to take right off. If you do it when it is cold, you don\'t see much activity for a few months until the weather warms some. I think almost all divisions will survive no matter when they are done, if they get decent sized pieces. If they are too small, they may not survive the colder months.
