Elkhorn Fern ( Polypodium Grandiceps )




Elk horn fern is a gnarly version of a bird’s nest fern. It wants slightly more light than most ferns and lots of water like all ferns do. If you like bird’s nests ferns but want something slightly different check this one out.

I find the broad leaf ferns are much easier to grow indoors than the smaller leaved versions. This one should do fine just about anywhere in your home, I’d avoid putting it in direct sun however.

Water it frequently but do not let it sit in water.

The height is about 18″, the spread is about 18″ as well.

If you purchase one online be sure to double check the Latin name, I found several ferns going by the ‘Elkhorn Fern’ name while I was researching this one.
