- Botanical Name: Asparagus Setaceus
- Common Name(s): Fern Asparagus
Description: The asparagus fern plant is not really a fern at all, but a member of the Liliaceae family, making it a relative of lilies and tulips. However, care is similar to most ferns. When growing asparagus ferns inside, place them near places with humidity and indirect light. Mist regularly. Its lush and frilly foliage makes it appear soft and fuzzy, but beware that there are thorny spurs. It's toxic to humans and animals, and is commonly placed in hanging displays.
- Care Ferns tend to like moist, well-drained soil and high humidity to thrive. Add some coarse sand or perlite to help improve drainage in your potting mixes. Cold drafts can cause their fronds to turn brown on the edges and tips. Bright filtered light is best.
