Unlike other Platycerium species, the fronds of P. elephantotis do not fork at all, giving them a very rounded appearance. Tall arching sterile fronds, and deeply veined broad round fertile fronds make this rare fern stand out from the crowd. Its common name is the elephant ear staghorn, and it really does look like a pair of ridiculously large ears. 

Size

The fertile fronds are 24″-30″. The sterile fronds are 18″-24″.

Temp/zone

P. elephantotis prefers temperatures to be above 60°F. It will survive short periods of colder temperatures. Damage will begin to occur below 40°F
