Hello,
I have a struggling elk horn on my brick wall situated to the south and noticed that it is droopy as well as alittle crispy.
Do you think it is getting too much late afternoon sun?
The other two larger ferns seem to be going ok and are situated higher and dont get direct light.
Any tips will be helpful,
Thanks

Like most Ferns, it does need protection from direct sunlight and it must stay moist at all times. High temps can also be detrimental.

Lower light, more water and more humidity. I think that is what Staghorn ferns like.
If they get too dry and too warm, they really suffer.
