Mounted Staghorn Ferns - March 9, 2024 - 11:00
In this workshop, you will learn how to mount a 4” Staghorn Fern onto a wood plank, using moss, wire & nails. Add a few beads and it becomes a work of art - no two are alike.
Understanding Staghorn Ferns
Staghorn ferns derive their name from the horn-like appearance of their fronds and are known for their striking anatomy – they boast two distinct types of foliage: shield fronds and antler fronds.
As epiphytes, staghorn ferns don’t require soil to grow; they’re often found clinging to trees in their natural habitat. Understanding these unusual traits is crucial to providing optimal care in a home or garden setting. Dwelling on tree trunks or branches, staghorn ferns live as epiphytes. This means they hold onto other plants for physical support but don’t absorb their nutrients. Instead, they gather nourishment from the air, rainwater, and any decomposed matter that lands on their roots.
Their unique growth pattern allows these ferns to thrive without soil beneath them! This adaptability is perfect for mounting indoors – whether on a wooden plank or moss-covered board – bringing a refreshing slice of nature into your living space!
