I'm going to be experimenting with my Asparagus ferns by taking cuttings and using rooting hormone powder to see if I can get them to root for me. My brother started some from seed... there is one in the pot that is different from the other one and I want more of it! Has anyone done this, and has it worked for you?
I've never tried cuttings, but I've noticed little bulbs down among the roots, I bet those would make new plants.
They are basically "throw away" plants here, no one wants them, or the stores will discount them to 50 cents or so.
A shame, they are nice.
If you have multiple stems growing from the soil, you can dig it up and divide the plant, making sure that you have roots/stems on any divisions. That is the fastest way. I don't recall anything about stem cuttings on these asparagus relatives, but it is fun to try.
