A Staghorn Fern is native to the rain forests of Queensland Australia where it is found growing on rocks and the sides of treesStaghorn Ferns are a very unique looking plants and do not resemble any other fern. The outer leaves of a Staghorn Fern, shaped like elk antlers, are thick and green. These leaves are covered in fine hairs that make them feel a little furry and give a Staghorn Fern a gray or silver look. The other leaf type at the bottom of ta Staghorn Fern is a brown cup-shaped frond that in nature captures nutrients. This frond also helps a Staghorn Fern cling to rocks, trees, the sides of pots, and decorative boards.
