Staghorn Ferns need to be given lots of light, but what we do not want is to have these ferns in direct sunlight. The natural growth environments for the fern is in dappled sunlight. This is achieved by them growing along tree trunks in the tropical forests. To achieve this you want to have the fern placed by a large tree if growing out doors; or indoors in a room with a lot of light but that is not directly in the suns rays. This may cause the plant to scorch.
- A staghorn fern can be a very huge fern if it is left to grow.
