Platycerium. This genus of unusual rather oddly-shaped ferns offers some extra ordinarily ornamental plants for both indoor and outdoor gardening. Native to tropical regions of Asia, Australia, South America and Africa, Platycerium require are epiphytic plants that usually grow on large trees. When growing these beautiful ferns at home, they can be grown indoors in hanging baskets in patios or near sunny windows. For growing outdoors, they would well against a tree or on wooden surface.
Will be hanging a Staghorn Fern in my Florida garden. These plants are actually air plants that need no soil to grow. The amazing thing about these ferns is that they also feed off their own composted frond material.
