A fluffy abundant fern!

The Asparagus Setaceus is always referred to as a fern but it is actually a member of the Lily family.

The Lace Fern comes from South Africa, they have long, wiry stems with super fine ferns, like lace thread. As it matures it loses its early bushy look and throws out tendrils that give it the potential to climb. It may even sprout flowers in late summer which turn into purple berries.

Key features of the Lace Fern - Asparagus Setaceus

Another amazing plant to help purify your home’s. The Asparagus Fern absorbs and eliminates toxins from the air around them.

We know that being around plants can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, but did you know they can also help lower blood pressure? Plants like the Asparagus Fern bring feelings of calmness and optimism and add a touch of happiness to your day!

How to care for the Lace Fern

  • Give it plenty of bright, indirect sunlight
  • Keep the plant moist but don’t let it sit in water to prevent root rot.
  • It survives well in average household temperatures. Avoid draughts. 
  • Mist it often to keep humidity
  • During the growing season, feed it with a weak fertiliser
  • If you notice its roots becoming pot bound, it’s time to repot it 

The Lace Fern Story

Also known as common asparagus fern, asparagus grass, climbing asparagus, or ferny asparagus

Where is it from?

Native to South Africa. Some say that they were brought to Europe in the 1600s. They then became popular in greenhouses and conservatories of the European elite.

Is The Lace Fern The Right Plant For Me?

Not a plant that you see often as a houseplant. When its delicate feathery foliage grows big enough, it resembles a canopy.

If you give it frequent watering, a moist warm place, and indirect sunlight, this plant will thrive in your home! 

How tall does it grow? It is fast-growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.

Fact: Although I'm always referred to as a fern (because of my appearance) I am actually a member of the Lily family.

Pets: Not considered toxic, but it can grow little berries that are inedible, best kept away from pets and children.

A delicate plant that will add extra elegance to your home! Get yours now!

Care Instructions

Light

I grow best in bright, indirect sunlight - don't let my leaves get scorched.

Water

Keep me fairly moist but definitely don't let me sit in water as this can cause my roots to rot.

Temperature

Keep me warm and away from draughts please!

Feeding

Give me some weak fertiliser a few times during the growing season, I won't need as much in winter.

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet-safe!

Grooming

If my ferns are looking a bit straggly, you may want to give me a trim. Please use sharp shears and don't rip me.

Care

As I'm a fast grower, I may need repotting sooner than your other plants. Check to see if I'm rootbound in Spring.
