I bought a house in September 2020. A clean pallet for another 15 years as I’ve recently left my tropical garden in Brisbane and moved to Ipswich.

@brightcolours Katie is there a way to propagate without wrecking it? I want to peel a new one off. Would that kill it?

It shouldn’t, if you’re careful. “* Using a serrated knife chop into the plant, being careful not to cut through the middle of any growth points.” www.abc.net.au/gardening/factsheets/dividing-elkhorns/9429220

I’ve never done it but there are lots of YouTube videos. #elkhorn-propagation

Oh my goodness! What a difference. What happens if you don't remove them?

@columbiariver it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. You can hack it back but it's kinda like a trophy plant. Very proud of myself. The stag horns are magnificent as well. The tree acts as a host for it.

@columbiariver @plants thanks mate. They're loving all the rain we missed out on in autumn. Usually winter is out dry season. Maybe climate change is coming quicker than we imagined.

"Staghorns are larger and have a large, shield-like frond at the front which curves outward to collect water and organic matter as it falls from above. The smaller elkhorn has multiple rosettes or ‘eyes’ of foliage which can be easily separated to start new plants. Both plants have similar growing requirements." www.aboutthegarden.com.au/index.php/how-to-grow-staghorns-and-elkhorns/
