 Asparagus Springeri makes an excellent hanging basket or container plant. Its easy-care nature also suits it for beginner gardeners.

 

How to Grow

Grow in bright indirect light. Keep soil evenly moist, allowing the top inch to dry out between waterings. Mist foliage regularly to increase humidity. Prune back as needed to control shape.

 

Care Tips

Water when the top inch of soil becomes dry. Feed every 2-3 weeks during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Keep away from direct hot sunlight. Bring indoors before frost.

 

Uses

Asparagus Springeri shines cascading from hanging baskets and containers. It also makes an airy, graceful accent in flower arrangements and wreaths.

 

Planting Tips

Plant in a well-draining potting mix. Use a container with drainage holes and hang it where it gets bright indirect light. Trim back before replanting to encourage bushy regrowth.

 

Maintenance

Pinch back tips regularly to encourage fullness. Prune as needed to control shape and size. Repot annually in fresh potting mix in spring.

 

Pests & Diseases

Watch for scale, mealybugs and mites. Control with neem oil or insecticidal soap. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot. Remove affected foliage promptly.
