Planting

Supplied in a standard nursery pot. You can repot the plant into a larger planter using humus-rich potting compost. Or stand the pot as it is in an attractive planter. If you leave it in its growing pot, place it on a saucer. Water is allowed to remain temporarily in the saucer and only water again after it has evaporated or been absorbed. Keep the soil moist.
Choose a warm place for your stag horn (Platycerium bifurcatum), light but sheltered from direct sunlight and preferably not below 15 degrees Celsius. The plant will require less water in cooler surroundings.
 

Care

The stag horn (Platycerium bifurcatum) is a plant native to tropical forests and therefore does not like direct sunlight! This beautiful plant prefers moist air, do not let the soil dry out and water at least once a week - water on the potting soil not on the fronds as the leaves have a wax layer on the surface.  
This plant does not like too strong a fertiliser, so we recommend halving the dosage suggested on the packaging of fertiliser for green plants.
Water less in the winter, keeping the soil slightly drier. Wait until spring to resume watering and feeding.
