Germination of

Platycerium stemaria

Triangle Staghorn Fern: Platycerium bifurcatum, elkhorn fern, antelope ears

Platycerium stemaria

Platycerium stemaria can be propagated by dividing the plant when it is large enough to do so. Separate the plant into sections, making sure each section has a portion of the fronds and a few roots. Pot each division in a well-draining soil mix, and water sparingly until new growth emerges.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
