  1. common staghorn fern

    The common staghorn fern is a type of epiphytic fern in the genus Platycerium, native to tropical and subtropical areas. This plant is often grown as a decorative plant, and gets its name from the large, bifurcated, antler-like fronds it produces. Staghorn ferns adhere to tree trunks and branches, absorbing water and nutrients directly from the rain and air. They require filtered light, high humidity, and good air circulation, making them a popular choice for indoor gardening.
