Ferns

Ferns are plants that have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants, but they do not produce flowers and seeds. Ferns reproduce by means of spores. Before the emergence of flowering plants, ferns dominated the land for millions of years. Nowadays, they are mostly valued for their attractive foliage.

What will kill asparagus ferns?

Glyphosate will kill asparagus ferns (Asparagus aethiopicus, A. densiflorus, A. sprengeri).

Specifically, glyphosate is the active ingredient in Round-Up. A particularly effective treatment is 1 percent solution of glyphosate to 0.25 percent surfactant. Follow-up treatments may be needed before the asparagus fern population is removed totally from the landscape.

Generally, weed problems may be solved by an attack plan of constant cutting down to the ground, controlled burning, and glyphosate. The initial reaction to the cutting initially may be vigorous regrowth. But the constant cutting is a stress that wears away at the plant in question.

Also, specifically in terms of the asparagus fern, it helps to remove as much of the root system as possible. As is the case with herbaceous and woody plants, growth begins from the roots.

What eats java fern?

Java fern, Microsorium pteropus, is known for its ability to tolerate low light levels and for not being eaten by many fish. While it is not supposed to taste good, no one told my goldfish who ate the plant I put in with them years ago. Most other fish leave it alone. Java fern is a fern that will produce spores and often baby plants right on the leaf. This plant does okay in my tanks with moderate light, soft water, and temperatures in the low 70's. It is very slow growing. Leaves can grow pretty large but then tend to rot and die, often with "babies" growing on them at that point. The small ramshorn snails in my tanks seem to enjoy "chewing" on it but the plant seems only minorly affected. thankyou for asking. :)

How do you take care of potted fern?

First, find the ideal location, which is preferably the northern side of the house. The northern side of any home is cooler and has mostly shade for the rest of the day. Potted ferns need soil that drains well, but can also retain moisture. Make sure the soil never gets dry.

Summary of Where the Red Fern Grows?

The book "Where the Red Fern Grows" is about a boy named Billy who saves up his money to buy two hunting hounds. When he gets enough money he goes to town on foot to buy them, a girl and a boy. On the way back he sleeps in a cave as a mountain lion screeches as it get closer. Billy rebuilds the fire and the lion is scared away. Little Ann has the brains and Old Dan has the strength. He trains them to be hunting dogs and they become the best in the country only hunting together as 3. Billy later enters the dogs into a coon hunting competition and they win. One night they go after what Billy thought was a coon. Turns out it was a mountain lion. The dogs are determined to kill it and the lion wasn't going to give up. Luckily, Billy has an axe with him and he kills him after many tries. When the fight is over, Old Dan and Little Ann are beat up. Unfortunately Old Dan's injuries are too fierce and he dies the next day. Little Ann is so upset she stops eating and dies a week after. Billy buries them side by side overlooking the hunting forests and a year later his family decides to move into the city. When Billy goes out to say goodbye to his dogs, he finds a red fern growing between their graves along with wildlife flowers. The old tale of the red fern was that only an angel sent from heaven planted it.

Why do ferns grow out from another fern?

Mother ferns, Asplenium viviparum, and A. bulbiferum, are two species of fern where small clones grow directly from the fronds of the parent. When the clones are large enough, they fall off the parent, and take root in the substrate below. Many plants have evolved the ability to produce clones of themselves in order to spread faster in an area than their competitors,as reproducing through clones is much faster than sexual reproduction through spores or seed.
