Asparagus Setaceus Houseplant
Asparagus Setaceus is an elegant fern houseplant, boasting wiry stems and horizontal sprays of foliage. Tiny, green-white bell shaped flowers may appear in late summer which develop into small, purple berries.
- Light: Bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight may scorch the needles, whereas insufficient light may turn them yellow and cause them to drop.
- Water: 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.
- Temperature: Normal warm household temperatures. Needs a minimum of 13°C in winter.
- Humidity: Mist to improve humidity when grown indoors.
- Care Tips: 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.
- Height and Growth Rate: Up to 1m. Asparagus are fast growing.
- Toxicity: The berries are inedible. May cause skin irritation.
