Plant factoid

Even though it originates 7500 miles away, the asparagus fern has become an invasive species in Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands shortly after introduction, due to its hardy nature.
Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

The Asparagus setaceus lives happily in a pot for very long time without the need to be repotted. When severely pot bound, repot in a pot larger by 1-2 cm or divide into 2 -3 clumps and propagate.

In summer, the Asparagus Fern will bear small white flowers, but they will not become the focus of attention.

Water only when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. The plant is more resilient to neglect than one might think, therefore it’s always better to underwater rather than overwater. Mist with plain water every other day in summer to keep a lush green foliage.

Feed in spring and summer with a balanced organic fertiliser, according to the instructions on the label.

Expert Tip

The Asparagus fern makes a great hanging plant with its delicate arching fronds. If kept as a table top plant, make sure to provide it with plenty of space to be able to enjoy its wonderful display of delicate foliage.
