I am officially addicted. I just can't stop, no matter what there needs to be more. My little stag horn project that I started a month ago just won't stop. If you missed it you can click here to read the first post and click here to read the second post. If you've read these posts then you know that I have 3 Cabbage Palm tree's in a triangle formation. Only 1 of these Palms had a clean trunk so I hung a Stag Horn ( Platycerium bifurcatum ) on it about head high from the ground. When I stepped back to look at it I said to myself, man I should clean the other trunk and hang another Stag Horn on it.At this time my 3rd Palm Tree was hidden by a large Cherry Bush Hedge. Well I cleaned it and hung another Stag Horn on it. The 2 Stags next to each other looked really good hanging on Palm Tree's. I stepped back again, you guessed it, I was not satisfied. This time I trimmed the Cherry Hedge way down and cleaned the 3rd Palm Tree trunk. I hung the last Stag Horn and it looks fantastic!! I am very pleased the the way this turned out. I hope more people hang there Stag Horns on Palm Tree's. Here are some pictures to show you the process, enjoy!!

That looks wonderful. Staghorns are such a unique plant. Have your other two been doing well on their palm homes?
