Create your own mounted Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum) or use our kit to mount another plant of your choosing. Our kit includes all the materials you will need to mount a plant but does not include the plant itself. Please add a Staghorn Fern or another plant to your order before you check out to complete your kit. You will also need a hammer and scissors (not included) to complete your project.
Mounted plants are an especially lovely way to enjoy ferns, peperomias and hoyas.
Medium Light - Your mounted Staghorn Fern prefers bright indirect light for 6 or more hours a day. Limit the amount of direct light it receives. An ideal location would be to hang it near a south or west window.
Water Regularly - Water this plant every week when the moss/soil feels dry. Before watering, check the moss with your hand. If the moss still feels moist, wait another 3-4 days to see if the moss dries and the plant is ready to be watered. Soak the entire mount, (plank, fern and moss) for 10 minutes, then let plank dry thoroughly before hanging up again. Almost all houseplants will use less water in the winter than in the summer, so adjust watering frequency seasonally based on how the moss feels.
Kit includes full directions and care instructions, wood plank, picture hook, antique finish tacks, moss and fishing line.
