Dramatic and unusual, this epiphytic fern is always a conversation piece whether mounted on a wall plaque or erupting from a basket or urn. Silvery green, antler-like fertile fronds are supported by a flat base of cinnamon brown overlapping sterile fronds. Easy to care for and endlessly variable, each becomes a long-lived sculptural companion. May be displayed outdoors in summer but should be brought inside when temperatures dip below 50̊. Platycerium bifurcatum
