Item description : One young Platycerium elephantotis sporeling. You receive a plant similar to the pictured ones (it’s unnecessary to ask me for a specific plant from the pictures as they only serve as exemple and are not the exact same plants that are for sale, they are all of top quality and I select only the best to be shipped)
Habitat and Description : Beautiful epiphytic fern from the African continent. The name “elephantotis” refers to the fertile fronds of this species that look like elephant feet. Very tolerant to drought, this species can enter in dormancy and have a very shrivelled aspect but as soon as rain is back it rehydrates and grows back almost instantly. This species can reach very large dimensions.
Care : Easy to grow but prefers acidic water, if your water is too alkaline it’s better to bath your plant in rainwater or distilled water. When the plant is well acclimated, you can put it in half shade or full sun. This species can tolerate drought to some extent but needs plenty of water during the growing season.
Cold hardiness : Tropical
