very nice michaelzz, can't wait for mine to be that big.. i've been collecting them for about a year and love them. i'm in southern california

RE: Staghorns in CT.

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...

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.
