Hi everyone, I found these plants for sale online. The owner doesn't know what they are other than they need to be kept in the shade and they don't need soil. I don't know anything about them either. They would be perfect for the side of my house so I am considering buying the 3 of them for $40 each.
I live in Western Australia.
If anyone has any information about these plants, it would be much appreciated. How to look after them etc

Thanks in advance

This is a staghorn fern, likely Platycerium bifurcatum. Those look like really nice plants - good buys at $40 each!

I agree great deal

Very nice! I agree, they are probably Common Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum) but we have listings for different varieties in our database with photos and care information: https://garden.org/plants/sear... They shouldn't be subjected to any direct hot sun or the fronds will be fried and eventually the demise of the plants.
