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
@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.
"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/
