Staghorn Fern Care

Zone Guelph, ON | Steviejames88 added on July 15, 2016 | Answered

I just very recently bought my first ever Staghorn fern. I've planted it in a wooden bowl on top of sphagnum moss (no soil). Will it be able to stay in this bowl long term? Or will I have to eventually mount it? Also, when I bought it from the nursery, it looks as though someone thought there were dead leaves on it so they ripped off ALL of the shield fronds and now there's none. Will they grow back and will my fern survive?? Thanks so much!!
