Platycerium bifurcatum.

  • We are so excited to bring these sustainably grown plants to you. 

    The plants are grown in a UK nursery, using peat free soil and in their very own biodegradable coir plant pot by the very talented Harriets Plants.   Completely plastic free!

    The Platycerium bifurcatum is also known as the elkhorn fern.  A plant with personality growing into dramatic yet elegant plants!



    Prefers a shady spot in your home but can also do well in partial shade and indirect light.



    Check in with this one weekly - Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil has dried out.   Also loves a good mist especially during summer!


    Hard to kill?

    8/10 - Keep your eye on the watering and make sure it's getting the right amount of light and this one should be easy to keep alive!


    How to pot.

    The coir pot is completely biodegradable.  We suggest keeping the plant in its coir pot for its first year.  These can sit inside decorative pots or directly onto a saucer.  The roots will start to grow through the pot so when you come to upgrade to a bigger size pot in spring you can add soil around the coir pot and it will continue to grow happily.

    If you do want to remove the coir pot make sure to do this carefully.   Cut the pot away, gently remove any roots that have attached and then pot into its new pot.  The coir pot can then be recycled as it is biodegradable.
