Staghorn Fern Plaque, Yep, It's Real!...The unique staghorn fern is named for its unusually shaped fronds, which are reminiscent of the antlers of a deer. It is an epiphyte, an air plant that grows upon another plant (like a tree) or upon some other object (like the wooden plaque shown here). It is nourished by the air and rain, and can be hung on a wall indoors or out. An occasional misting will keep it happily sparking conversations for years!
