    A Staghorn fern is a type of epiphytic fern, named for its fronds that resemble the antlers of a stag. It typically grows on other plants, trees or structures without harming them.

They are characterized by their two types of fronds, basal and foliar; the former typically serve as anchors and absorb nutrients while the latter are involved in photosynthesis.
