The Asparagus fern (Asparagus plumosus), might make you think of a misty Japanese Bonsai garden or a feathery green cloud. It may not technically be a fern, but it's sure to add a delicate yet lush jungle vibe to your home.
CARE + MAINTENANCE
Light + temperature
Medium to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight. 65 - 75°F.
Allow top inch of soil to dry out in between watering, but never allow to dry out entirely.
Highly toxic to pets. Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect your pet has ingested this plant.
The Asparagus fern requires humidity to thrive. We recommend misting regularly and abundantly, placing near a humidifier, or trying a pebble tray. This is also a great plant for steamy bathrooms with decent indirect light.
Why is my Asparagus fern turning yellow?
Yellowing leaves on this plant are often caused by too much direct light -- but can also be caused by too little light. Take stock of your lighting situation and consider whether your plant needs to be moved farther from a window that gets too much direct light, or perhaps closer to a window that gets only ambient light, such as facing north, or into a shady area.
