I have a staghorn that I got a couple weeks ago. I couldn't figure out exactly which species it is. It was just purchased at a regular garden centre, so I assume it to be one of the more common species. I'm worried about it. The leaves seem to be yellowing somewhat and one at the bottom has completely yellowed. My house does not have a great deal of light. A large NE facing window and a large SW facing one. The air is quite dry and unfortunately the plants need to be very close to the heating vents as these are directly under the windows. I purchased a humidifier and have been using that for a few hours a day. Originally I was spritzing the plant once a day. I've watered it well only once since I got it because I read that they don't require a lot of water.
Please help! What's going on with my fern? Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix it? I'm really attached to this plant!!
