GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Asparagus setaceus, commonly known as common asparagus fern, lace fern, climbing asparagus, or ferny asparagus, is a climbing plant in the genus Asparagus.
  • Despite its common name, the plant is not a true fern but has leaves that resemble one.
  • Asparagus setaceus is a scrambling perennial herb with tough green stems, which may reach several meters in length.
  • The leaves are actually leaf-like cladodes up to 7 mm long by 0.1 mm in diameter, which arise in clumps of up to 15 from the stem, making a fine, soft green fern-like foliage.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Asparagus ferns should be planted in loose, well-draining soil.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • The asparagus fern thrives in a dappled shade, although it can be acclimated to more light.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Keeping an asparagus fern hydrated takes a little effort.
  • If the plant appears to be turning brown and droopy, it likely needs more water in the soil.
