staghorn fern mounting kit

This is a perfect-sized board for mounting staghorns from 3-inch to 6-inch nursery pots.

Finished board dimensions are 12 inches tall by 7.75 inches wide. Redwood is rough-finished for a rustic appearance. No chemical staining or sealant. All edges are lightly sanded. If you don’t want the horizontal, angled support piece to assist with mounting your specimen, please let me know and I’ll omit it. Your board will be made to order. These four boards were constructed to take images for this posting.

The mounting board with fern specimen (Platycerium bifurcatum) attached is of the same design and dimension, several months after mounting from a 4-inch nursery pot.

This purchase comes complete with all hardware required to mount your fern, including 4 installed eye screws on front and hanger (2 eye screws and wire, as demonstrated in image) on backside, as well as high-strength fishing line or rustic-anodized aluminum wire (your choice) and high-quality sphagnum moss (Spagmoss brand).

If you are interested in a different dimension, please message me and we can talk pricing. I’ve made reinforced mounting boards up to 4 feet by four feet for very large, weighty specimens. All hardware is scaled to the needs of the specimen and particular board dimensions. I also have tried and true design modifications that permit indoor installation to protect walls from humidity and abrasion. Please message me for more detail.
