Plant Features

Sprengeri Asparagus Fern

Sprengeri asparagus ferns are a popular houseplant that is known for its delicate, feathery foliage. They are relatively easy to care for, preferring bright indirect light, watering when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry, and high humidity. They should be fertilized once a month during the spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Asparagus ferns do not require much pruning, but you can trim away any dead or damaged leaves. They can be propagated from cuttings. With proper care, asparagus ferns can thrive for many years.

Outdoor Care

Sprengeri asparagus ferns can also be grown outdoors in northern gardens. They perform best when planted in partial shade. Long, direct exposure to the sun will often result in its needle-like leaves turning yellowy-green, as will overwatering.

Indoor Care

If you are planning to grow this plant inside your house, then you can place it near a window, so that it can get bright, but filtered sunlight. The soil should be allowed to slightly dry before watering. Pet owners should take caution as it can cause stomach pain, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Additional Care Tips

  • Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent the roots from sitting in water.
  • Repot your asparagus fern every 2-3 years, or when it outgrows its pot.
  • Clean the leaves of your asparagus fern regularly with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris.
  • Watch out for pests such as spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs. These pests can be treated with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

With a little care and attention, your Sprengeri asparagus fern will thrive for many years to come.
