ABOUT OUR ASPARAGUS SETACEUS
Hi, I’m Ali the Asparagus Setaceus. I’m more commonly known as the asparagus grass or lace fern. My gorgeous green and delicate foliage gives me a stylish and sophisticated look. I’m a climbing plant and will attach my feathery foliage to any surface I can find. You might notice my foliage turn yellow in the full sun so if you decide to put me outside during the summer it’s a good idea to find me a shady spot. I’m one of NASA’S top air purifying plants that can help absorb any common household toxins helping you breathe easier.
Don’t let my name mislead you, I may look like part of the fern family but I’m actually not related to the fern species at all. I’m part of the asparagus genus along with 200 other species. I’m usually found growing in South Africa where I enjoy warm temperatures, high humidity and plenty of shade so my delicate foliage doesn’t dry out.
My sophisticated look is the perfect staple piece for a coffee table or bathroom shelf. My bright green foliage can withstand shadier parts of the home so place me in a prime spot where I can be enjoyed the most.
Small Height (including nursery pot) 20cm; pot diameter 12cm.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you take care of an Asparagus setaceus?
Asparagus Setaceus can be tricky to care for in the beginning. Once a few care tips have been mastered this can be a very rewarding plant. Keep the Asparagus Setaceus out of direct sunlight as this will burn and dry out their leaves. They can be sensitive to tap water so filtered water will be easier on their root system. Allow only the first inch of soil to dry out before watering and make sure the soil stays moist. You might notice the fronds turning yellow if overwatered. Like many tropical plants the Asparagus Setaceus adores high levels of humidity and will need a humidifier or steamy bathroom to keep any crispy tips at bay.
How much light does an Asparagus Fern need?
The Asparagus Setaceus does not need a lot of sunlight to survive. They will tolerate a medium light and can be placed in a shady spot.
Should I mist an Asparagus Fern?
A daily mist is required to help keep any crispy fonds at bay. A humidifier might prove more effective and less time consuming than misting daily.
PLANT STYLING TIPS
