Asparagus Plumosus, Asparagus Fern, or Lace Fern is a great air purifier as it is known to absorb benzene, octane, toluene and alpha-Pinene from the air. While not a true fern, the Asparagus Fern is hardy, evergreen climber that will get very tall over time. Use this plant to add height to your terrarium. Trim it regularly for the best effect.
These Asparagus Ferns are great in any setting. They have a beautiful airy, layed look and do not require too much maintenance. Houseplants soften the look of any interiors and these little beauties will thrive in most conditions.
Lace Fern is one of the fastest-growing least demanding houseplants. Asparagus Plumosus care is easy; water it sparingly and do not keep it in direct Sunlight. Mist occasionally and don’t allow the soil to become dry for long periods. They thrive if kept moist, but not wet, most of the time.
Insufficient light will result in yellow needles that drop. They prefer rich, slightly acidic well drained soil. They produce large, tuberous roots that can become pot-bound quickly. If pruning is necessary, cut stems all the way back to the root rather than just shortening them.
