Pot size 12cm
Height 25cm Asparagus ‘Setaceus’
This elegant little indoor plant is native to South Africa, where it grows in soft clumps in steamy forests. With feathery light foliage it adds an attractive and elegant touch to any room indoors.
Light and Water
It’s accustomed to light levels ranging from partial shade to bright, indirect light. It thrives in dappled shade and can be acclimated to more light but keep it out of direct bright sunlight!
Keeping an asparagus fern hydrated takes a little effort. This plant thrives on humidity. Indoor growing conditions can often be dry, especially due to winter heat. Mist the plant daily, focusing on the arching stems. If the plant appears to be turning brown and droopy, it likely needs more water. While the asparagus fern can dry out to the point of appearing dead, it likely isn't. Warmer, humid air and daily misting will help revive it.
As it’s not keen on being touched very much, it’s a good plant for a shelf, where it won’t be bothered. Its beauty is best enjoyed from a comfortable distance.
