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. It is fast-growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.
Due to their vigorous growth habit, Asparagus setaceus may become pot bound. If required, re-pot and trim during springtime to maintain the desired size and shape. Thorns can be sharp so take care when handling.
Tips: Direct sunlight may scorch the needles, whereas insufficient light may turn them yellow and cause them to drop.
Not edible. Toxic if accidentally ingested.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight year-round. For even growth, give the plant a quarter turn every week or so to expose all sides to sunlight.
Water: Water thoroughly, allowing the top 2" of the soil to dry out a little between waterings. Too much water can lead to root rot. Water sparingly in winter, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely. Remember to use tepid water to water your house plants.
