Mounted elkhorns with Anna Macoboy


Elkhorns are native to Australia and traditionally grow on tree trunks. They absorb nutrients and water through their fronds, making them ideal for mounting! Learn more about this fabulous fern and make your own mounted elkhorn trophy in a dynamic hands-on workshop.

You'll be guided through the process of preparing your surface board, attaching and then presenting your elkhorn plant. You will also learn how to care for your new plant, including when and how to water and tips for placement and feeding.

All tools and materials are provided.
