Staghorn Fern(Platycerium) spores from underside of the foliage. 鹿角蕨葉背的孢子.

Tropical hardy fern.  Large.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist environment.  Good for indoors! USDA Zones:9-11.  Mature size:3′-4′(H) X 4′-6′(W). Usually can grow to bigger size but the plant weight and difficulty of maintenance are kept to smaller sizes.  This nice fern is often the focal point!  Propagate by spores, offsets or division.

熱帶強健的大型蕨類. 容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照的濕潤環境. 適合室內栽培! 喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高3-4呎,寬幅4-6呎. 儘管能長到比所說的更大些,但是鑒於吊掛的植株的重量加重後的維護困難會增加,所以種植者通常會將植株維持在好維護的大小.  它的外型好看,常常是注目的焦點!  繁殖以孢子,子株或分株的方式來進行.
