Asparagus Foxtail Fern, Emerald fern
Small, evergreen tuberous perennial, about 50 – 90 cm height with fern-like shoots from Africa. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor decoration. The cultivar Mazeppa forms broad, arching shoots with fine, needle-like foliage and a conifer-like appearance. The tiny, white flowers are followed by attractive, bright red berries.
The seeds are sown in vermiculite or perlite in plastic pots- bigger seeds need to be covered, small seeds should remain on the surface. Then put the plastic pot in a ziplock bag. Fill in the ziplock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remains on the bottom. Then close the ziplock bag. More watering is not required because no moisture evaporates through the ziplock bag.
Keep the pot in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 73-83 F.
