Platycerium Charles Alford

Platycerium is a genus of epiphytic ferns commonly known as staghorn ferns due to their unique and distinctive frond shapes. These ferns are native to tropical and subtropical regions, and they are particularly prevalent in Southeast Asia, Australia, and Africa.


When it comes to naming cultivars of plants, including Platycerium ferns, it is customary to include the name of the plant breeder or discoverer as part of the cultivar name. This is a way to honor and recognize their contribution to the cultivation or discovery of the new variety. For example, a cultivar name might look like “Platycerium ‘Charles Alford'” or “Platycerium charlesalfordii.”


However, without specific information or access to updated plant databases, I cannot provide detailed information about a specific cultivar called “Platycerium Charles Alford” if it exists. If this is a new or less common cultivar, I recommend checking with reputable nurseries, plant experts, or botanical gardens for the most up-to-date information and care guidelines.


For general care of Platycerium ferns, please refer to the information provided in my previous response about Platycerium ferns’ key features, growth habits, light, temperature, humidity, watering, potting mix, and fertilization. Staghorn ferns can be fascinating and rewarding plants to grow, both indoors and outdoors, with the right care and attention.
