germination instructions Platycerium superbum - Giant Staghorn fern:

´╗┐Please use for sowing of fern spores Jiffy 7 Peat Pellets, soak them in water and put in a plastic pot.

Sow the fern spores on the peat pellets.

Then put the plastic pot in a ziplock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a ziplock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the ziplock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom. Then close the ziplock bag - Ready!

More watering is not required because no moisture evaporates through the ziplock bag .

Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 77 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-72 F. The resulting micro-climate provides ideal conditions for germination.

Soon you will see a fine green layer on the surface. From the prothallia the small fern plants will develop with high humidity.
