Big Staghorn Fern!

Filed under: House work — thefusionguy @ 5:58 am

Bought this huge staghorn fern at the San Diego Botanic Garden sale. But then, I had to mount it! I made the backing board out of the same cedar that the house is sided with, but together the plant and board must weigh more than 100 lbs. I made a support bracket from redwood and screwed it to the studs, but getting the plant up to in involved getting a block and tackle. Now that it’s up, it looks pretty good I think.
