Platycerium grande is a slow-growing fern that can eventually reach up to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It has two types of fronds: shield fronds and fertile fronds. The shield fronds are broad and flat, and they help to protect the plant’s roots and rhizome. The fertile fronds are narrower and more upright, and they produce the plant’s spores.

Platycerium grande is a relatively easy-care plant, but it does require some specific conditions in order to thrive. It needs bright, indirect light, and it should be kept moist but not soggy. The plant is also sensitive to cold, so it is important to protect it from frost and drafts.

Care instructions:

  • Light: Bright, indirect light is ideal. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can scorch the plant’s fronds.
  • Water: Keep the plant’s roots moist but not soggy. Water deeply when the top inch of potting mix is dry.
  • Humidity: Platycerium grande prefers humid conditions. If the air in your home is dry, you can mist the plant regularly or place it on a pebble tray.
  • Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength.
  • Temperature: Platycerium grande prefers warm temperatures, between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Protect the plant from frost and drafts.
