  1. elkhorn fern

    An elkhorn fern is a type of plant known scientifically as "Platycerium bifurcatum." It's a large, bushy fern native to tropical areas in the South Pacific, including Australia. The fern gets its common name from its leaves, which have a complex, multi-lobed shape that strongly resembles the antlers of an elk. Elkhorn ferns are epiphytic, meaning they take hold on other plants and derive their nutrients from the rain, air and the debris around them. They are popular plants for indoor gardening, as they can thrive in indirect light and are generally low maintenance.
