Drooping Staghorn!

Posted by rosa_sharon 6z MA (My Page) on

Hi all,
I just mounted a small staghorn fern on a piece of wood, and it was doing well for a bit, but now it seems to be permanently droopy- Even after watering it by immersing it in water as instructed.

I have a very big staghorn that is in a pot that I've had for years, so I'm pretty familiar with care, but this one has me stumped. The odd thing is, it has some new growth emerging.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks for any help you can give me.. I'd really hate to lose this beauty.

What about asking on the moss/fern forum? These kinds of plants don't come up here often. Does it have a crown juncture like a regular plant that could have been damaged? Pretty cool looking, hope it perks up!
