The Lace Fern, or Common Asparagus Fern is probably the most popular of all the Asparagus houseplants. A native to southern Africa, this vigorous houseplant develops stunning and delicate foliage, that grows horizontally and is very shapely.

Light: This plant enjoys bright-indirect light, so is best suited to sit in an east-facing window. If being placed in a west or south-facing room, keep away from the window, as direct sunlight will scorch the needles. Insufficient light will cause the needles to turn yellow and drop.

Water: Water regularly to keep the compost moist, but not soggy. Fertilise every other week during the growing season.

Air: Average room temperature is fine, but will require a minimum of 13ºC. Avoid cold draughts. Does not necessarily need increased humidity, but needles will drop if too dry, so mist occasionally, especially in winter.

When repotting, use a well-draining houseplant potting mix and add some perlite to increase drainage, if necessary.

Pot size: D17cm x H16cm Plant size: approximately W40cm x H50cm
