Water 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. The Polystichum aculeatum Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 glasses of water .

Cultivation 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.

Light Polystichum aculeatumPosizione mezza ombra
It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays only 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 bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures.

Pests 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.

Mold 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.
