Asparagus fern

Asparagus ferns are like mini jungles and I can't get enough of them! They are fluffy and gorgeous and surprisingly easy to care for! Read below for my main tips for success.


Asparagus ferns prefer a shadier spot so keep them out of direct sun! They are perfect for rooms with low light. But remember - all plants need at least SOME light so don't be tempted to put them in a windowless bathroom.


As with other ferns, asparagus ferns love to be consistently moist. So when the top of the soil dries out, give them a water. But you don't want them to be soggy and swimming in water so make sure the pot has drainage and you allow it to drain each time you water.


Asparagus ferns love humidity, the best ways to achieve this are by keeping the plant in a bathroom, misting regularly, using a humidifier or placing the plant on a tray of wet pebbles.


You can feed your asparagus fern with every second watering or around once a month in the warmer months. Feeding is not required over autumn/winter as the plant is not actively growing. You can purchase our plant food here.
