Fern Asparagus setaceus (syn. plumosus) (12cm Pot)

Product Code: 156080
£5.99
  • 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 develop into small, purple berries. Although Asparagus setaceus looks soft and frilly, it does develop thorns to watch for when handling
  • Common name: Lace Fern, Common Asparagus Fern or Climbing Asparagus
  • The berries are inedible. May cause skin irritation
  • Pot size: 12cm
  • Keep well-watered, but do not allow to stand in water. Less water is required during the winter but don’t let the soil dry out completely. Mist to improve humidity when grown indoors. Grow in bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight may scorch the needles, whereas insufficient light may turn them yellow and cause them to drop
  • Due to their vigorous growth habit, Asparagus setaceus 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

It is fast growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.
