Fountain spleenwort smooth rock spleenwort

Culture and comments Truly a gem with petite green fountains of fronds, the fountain spleenwort is best planted in the controlled environment of a trough or alpine house. Loose soil, preferably with a touch of limestone, protection from overwatering, and precautions for slugs and snails will help to maintain this species at its ornamental best. A miniature replica that matures at 3 to 4 in. (7.5 to 10 cm) is in the trade in the united states and Britain and is a charming choice for a groundcover in bonsai plantings as well as the elite section of the rare plant collection.

Cheilanthes gracillima Lace fern

Culture and comments This Cheilanthes can be introduced to lowland gardens by paying careful attention to the requirements for good drainage and by providing soil that is not overly rich. My pride-and-joy specimen has been in a low 2-in. (5-cm) high bonsai pot with huge drainage holes for four years. No fertilizer, no mulch, and nothing other than filtered sunshine have been offered for encouragement. A container planting is recommended.


Choose container culture for a myriad of special situations close-up viewing of unique or rare specimens (and for a bit of horticultural braggadocio here), for species that have special soil requirements, for hobbies such as bonsai, for containing aggressive but, depending on one's taste, interesting collector's plants (Equisetum comes to mind), for portability of questionably hardy treasures that need to be moved for winter protection, or just for the joy of displaying and admiring a collection of plants that one would like to rearrange for seasonal decoration. Modern containers come in all sizes and designs, limited only by the imagination. The clay pots of yore, however, molting by inclination in winter frosts, have in many areas been supplanted by glazed ornamentals. Hypertufa troughs constructed with peat and cement, and carefully cured, are widely used to give a rustic appearance for the optimal display of alpine plants. Potential candidates for tufa culture should be chosen...


Theories vary regarding fertilizer with one being that none should be added and the other being that the xeric native habitats are high in mineral nutrients and fertilizer is welcome. I do not feed mine, mostly because of a lack of prioritized time rather than strong convictions, but some of the best xerics I have seen are in bonsai pots and regularly fed. (While these pots are not usually deep, they have extra large drain holes to facilitate the ferns' required good drainage needs.) Whichever course you chose, be sure that applied amounts are no more than one-half of the manufacturer's recommended strength. Feeding for any ferns, including xerics, is most effective when applied during active new growth.

Dwarf scouring rush

Culture and comments With its diminutive stature, the miniature scouring rush makes a delightful conversation piece in a well-watered container. It would, in fact, be overwhelmed in anything but a Lilliputian garden but has been used effectively as an understory in bonsai or, when containerized, as a companion plant on the borders of bogs. While not as aggressive as its brethren, it can spread, given the opportunity, so confinement is strongly recommended. culture and comments Like Equisetum scirpoides, the variegated scouring rush is an interesting plant for close-up viewing in a container. it makes an atypical bonsai and given sufficient watering may be used successfully as a houseplant.
