An outstanding foliage plant, Asplenium australasicum ‘Lasagna’ with its glossy deep green foliage can be grown as an indoor plant or in a protected position in the garden.
The fronds will reach around 1.5 metres in length and the plant itself form a neat rosette. With wavy leaf margins, this makes a great feature plant and will grow equally well in containers, in the garden itself of in the fork of, or attached to a tree.
Being an epiphytic plant, if you are growing Asplenium ‘Lasagna’ in the ground, we suggest that you hill up, the soil a little to ensure that drainage is excellent.
Once planted this is a remarkably low maintenance plant. A little liquid fertiliser in spring and early summer should be sufficient. A position in shade, yet with good filtered light is recommended.
- Do not over water as this can cause root problems.
- Prune away old dead foliage as required.
