An ornamental ?cousin? to the edible Asparagus, Asparagus Mayeri is more commonly used in cut flower arrangements than as a potted plant. It gets its name from the soft, airy fronds that resemble the foliage of the vegetable asparagus plant. This easy-to-care plant can be wonderful when used solo as a calming accent or grouped with other plants to create a lush, natural setting.
Adopting and caring for Asparagus Mayeri
: Adding a lush, well-grown Asparagus Mayeri to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape, and well-formed leaves. Adopting
: It’s best to locate an Asparagus away from a fully sunny spot. They do best in locations with bright indirect light, where their leaves get bushy and the plants get this classy look Locating
: Like most plants, Asparagus needs rich, well-drained soil that has been fortified with organic material. So it is ideal to add good quantities of compost to the potting mix. A blend of coco-peat, compost, and river sand in a 30:50:20 ratio should help the plant to do well. As Asparagus matures, they develop crows or little tubers in their root structure that tend to overcrowd their pots. So if your Asparagus is growing in pots, it is important to check if the potting mixture has been overwhelmed by its roots, and a thinning may be necessary Potting
: A well-grown Asparagus plant does well in humid conditions, so it needs watering and misting daily. While misting, concentrate on wetting its branches as much as its leaves Watering
: Since the root structure of an Asparagus tends to overcrowd its potting mixture, these plants need to be fed regularly. Feed them with organic liquid fertiliser once every fortnight. Use the same fertiliser to create a foliar spray and spray at half the strength. If you prefer a chemical fertiliser, do remember to protect the leaves and stem of your Asparagus Fertilising Once you acquire an asparagus plant for your garden, it will continue to add beauty to your home for years and years. With minimal care, timely fertilising schedules and regular repotting this species can continue to remain a showpiece plant.
