Why is my asparagus fern browning?
During the warm months I keep it outside and it thrives. When it starts getting cool I bring it in and it doesn’t do so well. Does anybody know why this is or why it’s browning?
8” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 months ago
I checked to make sure, and it says Asparagus Ferns are pretty drought resistant, but the foliage can become yellow or brown in response to drought. So perhaps give it a little spritz of water
The same happened to mine. What I learned also is that the soil can be a little dry, but the foliage indeed needs to be moist. So try spraying a little water everyday on them. It’s also good to prune the parts that are brown. You could also put like a plastic bag over it so it can get moist. Give it a little air everyday tho.
Thank you so much!
