40 years ago or so, my mother had a huge staghorn fern. nowadays you see big staghorns all over the place, but back then it was the biggest by far in the Bradenton-Sarasota area. It got so huge that my mother gave it to Sarasota Jungle Gardens. They were pleased to take it. My sister grabbed a pup off the fern and kept it her house in Louisiana. When we bpought this house in Bradenton she brought it here. I stuffed it a stand of palms behind my house. My sister says I’m supposed to feed it bananas. Kind of like the Little Shop of Horrors.
