Fern Plant with Round Dot Planter

399.00

Asparagus setaceus, commonly called asparagus fern, is not in fact a fern. It is a bushy, evergreen, twining vine with wiry, spiny, scrambling or climbing stems that typically grow to 10-20′ long. It features feathery, fern-like flattened sprays of bright green stems, small white summer flowers and deep purple berries. The true leaves of this plant are tiny dry scales. The structures which appear to be leaves are flattened shoots (modified stems) called cladodes or cladophylls on which the flowers and fruits are borne. Cladophylls rise from the axil between the stem and the scale-like leaf. Mature stems become woody over time and develop sharp spines. This vine is native to South Africa, but has been introduced in subtropical areas around the world. It has shown weedy tendencies in some locations.

Plant care

  • The asparagus fern thrives in dappled shade, although it can be acclimated to more light. Keep it out of direct, bright sunlight, which can scorch the foliage.
  • Plant asparagus ferns in pots or containers in moist, loose, well-drained potting soil. Outdoors, plant it in rich, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic.
  • Keeping an asparagus fern hydrated takes a little effort, as this plant thrives on humidity. Indoor growing conditions can often be too dry, especially during the winter heating season.
  • Keep soil moist, and water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Try to maintain a warm temperature around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and not dip below 55 degrees Fahrenheit for too long.
  • Feed asparagus fern with liquid or water-soluble all-purpose plant fooddiluted to half strength. During summer, container plants may need weekly feedings; otherwise, feed monthly.
