It can not get any cool & artsy than having a Staghorn Fern Indoors. Staghorn Ferns can be grown a wire basket or frame, using a ceramic pot like I planted a mine or can commonly grow on pieces of wood, like driftwood, a hunk of bark, or a tree branch. When planted in a container you can use them as centerpieces, or even in place of wall art. The reason i decided to plant mine in a bowl because of it easy to water and fertilize. When the staghorn fern is placed on a piece of wood, you need to bring it somewhere where you can be wet and let it drip dry for at least 30 minutes, making it a time-consuming task.
