I bought a staghorn fern, and it was planted in some type of soil. I have heard, though, that these ferns are at most supposed to be in spaghnam moss. Should I, then, remove this soil? Also, how much water do these plants need?

Thank you,
Thomas

I know nothing about that but if you ever find any babies that you can safely remove from the parent, PLEASE let me know!! I LOVE these!! hehehe Like with everything else they are a bit on the pricey side to buy!!

maybe this will help.

I have seen them grown in a potting meduim and believe was more like orchiad mix type,mostly bark and was in one of those small wood boxes and the roots had grown throughout the box.My cuz in FL has one.maybe I can catch her online& ask about hers.I know from pics hers is on a chunk of bark& the bark is tied to top part of awening pole,but it gets sun.

good luck with your plant. [wayey]
