Platycerium wandae, also known as the Queen Staghorn Fern, is a large and impressive epiphytic fern native to the rainforests of New Guinea. It is known for its striking fronds, which can grow up to 6 feet long and 3 feet wide. The sterile fronds are broad and shield-shaped, while the fertile fronds are narrower and more upright.

Platycerium wandae is a relatively slow-growing fern, but it can eventually reach a height of over 10 feet. It is a popular plant for indoor and outdoor cultivation, but it is important to note that it requires warm, humid conditions.

Product Description

The Platycerium wandae plants that we offer are all healthy and well-established. They are grown on a variety of mounting media, including plaques, boards, and driftwood. The plants are shipped bare-root, but they are carefully packed to ensure safe arrival.

  • 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 or mounting media is dry.
  • Humidity: Platycerium wandae 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 wandae prefers warm temperatures, between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Protect the plant from frost and drafts.
