How to care for Common Asparagus fern leaves yellowing

Common Asparagus fern produces yellowish leaves, so it needs to be protected from sunburn caused by strong light. In summer temperature rise, we need to ensure that the soil in a moist state, does enough to replenish water. So every time we fertilize the Common asparagus fern, the fertilizer is diluted and applied. Common asparagus fern grows so quickly that it needs to be pruned in time to increase airflow and prevent bacteria and pests from growing. Here are details of how to care for Common asparagus fern leaves yellowing.

1. Shade protection

Intense summer sunlight, prolonged exposure to the sun, causes the sunburn of the leaves of the Common asparagus fern plant to appear yellowish. The Common asparagus fern needs to be preserved in a well-ventilated place that gets enough sunlight so that the leaves can grow even greener. In summer light is so intense that it needs shading for Common asparagus.

2. Increase watering

Common asparagus fern likes moist conditions. So as temperatures rise, moisture evaporates faster and the soil dries out, so as a result, we'll see yellow leaves. Water the Common asparagus fern once a day in the summer to keep the soil moist and hydrated. The temperature drops in winter and less watering is needed.

3. Fertilization control

In the process of fertilizing Common asparagus fern, the fertilizer had to be diluted so that root burning would occur if the concentration was too high. When we fertilize the Common asparagus fern, the fertilizer is diluted and applied. So every time we fertilize the Common asparagus fern, we need to water it in a timely manner and turn over the soil to effectively promote root absorption.

4. Tips for growing Common asparagus fern 

Common asparagus fern has so much asparagus that it needs pruning to reduce excess nutrients. The timely removal of yellow leaves can effectively promote the germination of new branches and leaves. Thinning of the asparagus could effectively increase air flow and prevent the growth of bacteria and pests.Spray insecticide frequently to prevent it.

How to care for Common asparagus fern stems yellowing

So the yellow stems of the Common asparagus fern could have been caused by overwatering, and the lack of oxygen in the roots would have caused the yellow stems. Insufficient or too strong light also causes yellowing of the stems. Common asparagus fern cannot be maintained in environments with high levels of smog or high levels of electronic radiation. Too much asparagus would scorch the roots and cause the Common asparagus fern stems to wither and turn yellow. Here are details of how to care for Common asparagus fern stems yellowing.

1. Water 

Overwatering causes the Common asparagus to lose oxygen to its roots and even the roots to rot, so that the stems turn yellow and shrivish. At this time, we need to loosen the soil in time, speed up the evaporation of water, when necessary we can change soil. Insufficient watering can also lead to yellow stems and leaves, then we need reasonable watering, the best watering method is to see dry and see wet.

2. Lighting  

If Common asparagus fern grows in a relatively dark environment for a long period of time, or if it's exposed to the sun for a long period of time, it can cause the plants to turn yellow and wither. The best way to preserve our Common asparagus fern would be to put it in a place that would allow the sun to disperse and ventilate it, so that it would be able to grow and grow.

3. Radiation pollution

Common asparagus fern is relatively tender, and it can cause plants to turn yellow and shrivel over time as it sits next to televisions and computers that have a lot of radiation. Air pollution also causes the yellowing of the stem of the Common asparagus fern. As a result, the Common asparagus fern will gradually wither if it is kept in a smoggy environment for so long. So, when we're growing the Common asparagus fern, we're not going to put it next to electronics, and we're not going to let off smoke indoors.

4. Fertilization

Common asparagus fern does not need so much asparagus. Too much asparagus can burn the roots and cause the stems to turn yellow, even wither and die. So attention should be paid to the application of asparagus that is not fertilized for a long time. Low concentration compound fertilizer based on nitrogen should be applied in the non-growing season of spring and autumn.
