Okay I'm usually a bit more active in the Aroid forum. But today I have a fern question. So I found this amazing staghorn fern at my local nursery. ( the big one) It's mounted on a coconut... which is a bit of a shame, I don't know if that good for the fern long term.. and I'm not fully sure how to get it out of there yet... but I'm trying to determine if it's a different variety/ species of the one I already have in the orchids basket.. can anyone tell me if these two are the same species?
The new one is much larger, and a lot darker too.. not sure if that's because it's been a bit neglected( since it has some burn marks/ scars) or if it's just different.. Any thoughts?

I appreciate you looking into it! Yeah they look totally different to me! I've had the smaller one for years, and it has been through hell and back thanks to scale. But it's looking healthy now, and it's threw out 3 leaves and 2 shield fronds this summer
