Looking for any tips on staghorn ferns

16 years ago

Staghorn ferns are one of my favorites, and although they may not die, mine never look very healthy. The larger leaves go all wilted as if they need water. I understand that overwatering is more of a problem for this plant than for most,so I try to water only when the soil is dry, but even then the leaves don't pick up. It's in good bright indirect light right over an aquarium which I hoped would help with the humidity. I have it in soil rather than on a slab of bark. I'd love to see it look like the ones at the nursery. Any secrets to success??
