Grow Staghorn Fern in your Garden

Dr Abe V Rotor

Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum). 
Platycerium is a genus of about 18 fern species in the polypod family, Polypodiaceae. 
Ferns in this genus are widely known as staghorn or elkhorn ferns due to their 
uniquely shaped fronds.

Is there any use resembling a wild beast,
        when you're so dainty and dangling free?
You tame the staghorn in the wilderness;
        a friend to children and your host tree. ~
