People also ask, does monkey grass grow back?
When to Trim Monkey Grass: Like other types of ornamental grasses, the best time to cut back monkey grass is in late winter or early spring. That way it will stay green all winter and insulate its roots from the cold, then after trimming the monkey grass only be bare for a few weeks while new leaves grow.
Furthermore, why is my monkey grass dying? Other than natural growth patterns, yellowing leaves may indicate that the plant is getting too much or too little water. Monkey grass stressed from drought turns yellow, and roots exposed to standing water also turn yellow. Older leaves on the play may slightly dry and wither.
Beside above, how do you treat monkey grass?
- Water: Monkey grass only needs watering two weeks after initial planting.
- Mulch: Apply 2-4 inches of mulch after trimming to help ward off weeds.
- Weed: Hand pull weeds around your monkey grass or spot treat weeds with a post emergent- be sure to steer clear of spraying the monkey grass.
How can I make my monkey grass grow faster?
Apply a general 10-10-10 fertilizer in the fall or early spring before new growth begins. Fertilizer will help the monkey grass cover more ground quicker. Use 1 pound per 100 square feet of monkey grass. Water after application to wash the fertilizer from the foliage and to help it move into the soil.
