My 500 lb Staghorn Fern has fallen to the ground. Can I leave it there as it is too heavy to lift?

I suspect the plant will eventually root where it is, providing it fell onto the ground. An alternative to leaving it where it is might be to cut it into divisions and reattach the divsions by wiring them to a tree or mounting them on a board. Good luck with your staghorn!
