If you are looking for a plant that will thrive in shaded areas of your home, then the Platycerium bifurcatum (Elkhorn Fern) is a great option. This popular fern is easy to care for and makes a beautiful addition to any indoor space. The Elkhorn Fern gets its name from its deeply divided leaves, which resemble the antlers of an elk. These beautiful ferns are native to Australia, and they thrive in temperate climates. Elkhorn Ferns are epiphytes, which means that they grow on other plants or objects rather than in the ground. In their natural habitat, they often grow on tree branches or in the crooks of tree trunks. This makes them perfect for growing in hanging baskets, as they will not need a lot of soil. The Elkhorn Fern prefers bright, indirect light and should be watered regularly. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering to prevent root rot. These ferns are relatively low-maintenance plants and make a great choice for beginning gardeners. If you are looking for a unique plant to add to your indoor space, the Platycerium bifurcatum (Elkhorn Fern) is a beautiful option that is easy to care for. These striking ferns will add interest and intrigue to any room in your home.
