Staghorn

Anonymous added on January 24, 2014 | Answered

Recently I have just moved and when we got to our destination, we discovered that our massive staghorn was a wilted, dead mess. I just want to know will she grow back? She is almost 25 years old.

You may need to cut back the dead looking growth to encourage new growth and give it plenty of water to revive the plant. It may benefit from a dose of fertilizer (half strength) as well. Hopefully this will be enough to perk it back up. If it's produced any pups, you may want to start another plant just in case.
