The Other Native Staghorn
Quick post: I was walking behind Palma Hall and chanced upon this specimen (or at least what i think it is) of Platycerium grande, the other recognized Philippine staghorn fern species. This is endemic to Mindanao and as the name suggests is one of the grandest in the genus. Because of its size and shape, Visayans call it kapa de leon.
