Staghorns in CT.

Have had these for about 15 years. Move them out in May. move them back indoors the end of October. , They thrive in the heat and humidity of a summer in COnnecticut.

I'd love to give these a try but worry about overwintering. How do you give them enough humidity in a CT winter w/the heat going. Our humidity levels plummet in the winter inside our home. Is a misting every day adequate? Thanks for the help...

Gosh,
I killed so many of those when I lived in Hawai'i, I never thought to try and grow them. Once I found a rats nest in a huge one 40 ft up in a tree.
