Asparagus 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 2,5 m unless pruned.
Pot size: 12 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 40 cm (without the pot)
Asparagus setaceus Plumosus is an elegant fern with long wiry stems and lovely frond-like sprays that scramble outwards horizontally. It is bushy initially, developing long, twining stems of bright green, feathery fronds. Tiny green-white bell-shaped flowers may appear in late summer which develops into small, purple berries. Although Asparagus setaceus looks soft and frilly, it does develop thorns to watch for when handling.
Bright, indirect light
Keep well-watered, but do not allow to stand in water. Less water is required during the winter but doesn’t let the soil dry out completely
Due to their vigorous growth habit, Asparagus may become pot-bound. If required, re-pot during springtime. Trim in winter/ early spring to maintain desired size and shape. Thorns can be sharp so take care when handling
