Asparagus Fern


Asparagus setaceus, or 'Asparagus fernis a fern in name and appearance only.

It belongs to the family "Liliaceae" and is a relative of lilies, including tulips, daylilies, amaryllis, and hostas.

This plant has a rich history in Ireland and was traditionally used as buttonhole corsages for special occasions. Today, however, asparagus ferns adorn homes as one of the most popular indoor plant choices. 

Care Instructions:  

  • These fast-growing plants like a lot of bright indirect sunlight.
  • Keep potting soil fairly moist although it can tolerate a little drought. 
  • The dry centrally heated homes of Ireland can encourage the growth of Amazonian plants only if there is moisture brought into the equation. Spray the leaves every second watering or so and watch the little fern imposter grow!
  • Keep away from pets as the leaves can be toxic if ingested. 

Care Level Rating: Easy
