Known locally as “tanduk rusa” or “deer’s antlers”, the proper name should be “Platycerium (Staghorn) Ferns “.

Just don’t ask me how to pronounce this…

Domesticated and nursery bred now, you find some homes hanging these in their gardens, patios and even at the front entrances; some folks believe that this will ward off “evil” spirits.

Well, don’t know about warding evil spirits but if you bump into one of these in dim light, I am sure you’ll be warded off – pronto!

A security device perhaps….hmmmm……
