Platycerium veitchii “Braam” / Silver Python / Staghorn Fern
Platycerium veitchii ‘Braam’ has lovely fuzzy slender short, erect, almost white fronds. Plant in a container or hanging basket to grow erect, or install on a board or backplate to function properly ( YouTube has several helpful videos). Plant with very lovely leaves. James Veitch, who created the Veitch nursery in Exeter in the late 1800s, was the inspiration for the name. Silver Elk Horn is another name for it.
The humidity, light, and temperature of staghorn ferns must all be carefully controlled. With proper care, ferns can thrive for many years and produce hundreds of pounds in their native habitat. Homegrown ferns are usually much smaller, but they can last for decades in the family. Staghorn ferns need to be watered often, but the plant media should be allowed to dry out between waterings. Once a month, fertilize them using a 1:1:1 ration fertilizer diluted in water. Black spot, a fungal disease, is a problem for the plant. To avoid the disfiguring spores, don’t water the leaves and keep the humidity low indoors.
