Truly enjoyed reading your post about Uncle Lindy's staghorn ferns. Now I'm on a hunt for one.

UK responder here... I planted my staghorn fern in a kokedama-style 'ball' (although it's a bit flattened) and used coconut fibre/coir hanging-basket liner as the outer wrap, enclosing the root ball in sphagnum moss to the interior. I wrapped it freely with hemp cord, and it hangs in my window space upstairs, coming into the garden on warm, clear days. I water it according to its weight; if it feels light, I drench it in a bucket of room-temperature rain water, then let it drip freely in my shower... I spray it daily, lightly with some also room-temperature rain water. Seems a happy bunny... I only obtained this about a week ago, but there's no sign of failure or distress, and a baby frond has increased in length by about a half inch, so I'm guessing it's not doing badly...

Just received one for Mother’s Day. Haven’t had one since the 70 - 80’s
