About Platycerium Superbum

This unusual tropical house plant produces irregularly shaped flat and antler like leaves that display dark and light green blocks of colour broken up by angular darker streaks that run throughout the leaf. In the wild, the large nest frond catches insects or falling leaves to act as fertilizer. Thriving in bright, indirect light, this unusual house plant can tolerate some shade, but you won't get as much colour in the leaves with lower light levels. You should only lightly water this plant every week and a half, increasing frequency during hot weather. This plant is native to Australia and loves a humid environment, so would do well in a bathroom or kitchen or if the leaves are misted regularly.


  • Our plants are provided in a plastic nursery pot. Any decorative pots or props are not included.
  • These plants shed their old leaves and as such leaves will go brown as they mature and new leaves take over
  • This plant is not for consumption

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
