|I have 2 staghorn ferns and I was wanting to know how old they are. Is there a way for me to figure it out?

|Well there is more then one type of staghorn fern so knowing which one might help. However I think that they kind of grow on top of themselves. They produce more and more fronds and more and more basal pads if you will.
You could in theory have younger plants of a large variety or older plants of a smaller, more compact variety. Putting an exact age on either one might just be an educated guess.
