Asparagus setaceus plumosus is also known as Lace Fern, Common Asparagus Fern or Climbing Asparagus. Although it is called a fern, it is really a member of the lily family.

She is an elegant fern with long wiry stems and lovely frond-like sprays that scramble outwards horizontally. She developes long, twining stems of bright green, feathery fronds. Although she looks soft and frilly, she does develop thorns so be careful when handling.

Light conditions: Indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the needles, whereas insufficient light can turn them yellow and cause them to drop.

Watering: Keep the soil moist with regular watering during the summer months. Do not allow to sit in water. Water less during the winter but don’t let the soil dry out completely.

Neediness: Easy to care for, however mist regularly as she likes high humidity. During the growing period add a weak plant food solution but do not feed in the winter.

Sizing: Pot W12CM Pot x Height approx. 30cm

Temperature: Normal warm household temperatures. Needs a minimum of 13°C in winter.

Growth: It is fast growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 1m.

Toxicity:  The berries are inedible. May cause skin irritation. 

Please note, the decorative planter is not included in the price.
