I'm mad about mist, if you mist me regularly I'll love you forever!


I'm happiest in a nice shady area out of the sun.


Keep it consistent, once the top two inches of soil are dry, water me so I keep looking my best.

About Lil' Asparagus Fern

The miniature Asparagus Fern hates being touched, so hands-off. However, we can hardly blame it - after all, we wouldn't like a giant poking and prodding us! Your Asparagus Setaceus Plumosus baby plant won't stay little for long though, repot it regularly, and this fast-growing plant will reach up to 1m!

Your Asparagus Fern is mist obsessed, so regularly mist it and keep it somewhere humid like your bathroom or kitchen, and it will be happy as larry. While it may not like being touched, your Asparagus Fern doesn't mind a little grooming, so you can trim away any dead or dying leaves or trim to your desired shape, as long as you try to keep touching to a minimum.

Despite coming from sunny South Africa, this Prickle plant surprisingly prefers to be kept in the shade and can handle temperatures from 13°C and up. As well as frequently misting your indoor Asparagus Fern, you should also regularly water it as under watering will cause its foliage to brown.

The Asparagus plant's aversion to being touched extends to little Pricklettes, and it is poisonous to children and animals, so make sure they enjoy this plant's beauty from a safe distance!
