Watering Polystichum aculeatumTenere Umido
To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks .

Generalities Polystichum aculeatum
Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a green colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Polystichum aculeatum develops into a fern.

Exposure Polystichum aculeatumPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.The Polystichum aculeatum plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.

Treatments Polystichum aculeatum
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Polystichum aculeatum
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
