Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a novice, the Asparagus Foxtail Fern is a fantastic choice for adding a touch of greenery to your surroundings, giving beauty and tranquillity with its distinct appeal.
Light: Place your Foxtail Fern in bright, indirect sunshine. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can damage the delicate fronds.
Watering: Maintain a continuously wet but not soggy soil. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry, which should be every 1-2 weeks.
Fertilization: During the growing season (spring through early autumn), feed your Asparagus Foxtail Fern a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks.
Pruning: Trim any brown or yellowing fronds to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s appearance.
