It's a holiday Monday, so just a few links for an entry today. The Australian National Botanic Gardens provides an excellent information sheet on this New Guinea and Australian native: Growing Platycerium bifurcatum. If you're interested in some of the biology behind staghorn (or elkhorn) ferns, see: Kreier, H and Schneider, H. 2006. Phylogeny and biogeography of the staghorn fern genus Platycerium (Polypodiaceae, Polypodiidae) (abstract, if the full article isn't available). American Journal of Botany. 93:217-225.
For a humourous staghorn fern, see this BPotD submission: Staghorn Fern Bug? (thanks, toutlan!).
