Description

A deceptive plant, the Asparagus Setaceus looks halfway between a lacy, lightweight fern and the top of an asparagus - hence, its common name. It's tiny threadlike leaves form feathery dark green sprays, resembling fern fronds.

Plumosa Fern is popular for the indoor gardener. It has a more airy, layered look, with spreading stems and soft, small needles. Watch out, though, for its climbing shoots - they'll wrap around anything available. It responds well to trimming and pruning, so you can keep the tips from getting too long.

Environment

Plant the outdoor plumosa fern in a lightly shaded area, particularly avoiding hot afternoon sun. It needs fertile well drained soil. Keep soil evenly moist. Water thoroughly during dry weather.

Landscape Use

Perfect for tabletops, in hanging planters or as part of the landscape as trees in a miniature garden or for fairies to lounge under in their garden!

In general, ferns are low-maintenance and hardy, but they do require a bit of upkeep. Ferns require a lot of indirect bright light and not direct sunlight. You can keep it in balconies but make sure no direct sun falls on the leaves. As the ferns have fragile leaves, they tend to burn.

Ferns in general love humidity. You can spray in the air above the fern and let the mist settle on leaves. Most ferns like an evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Water them daily but just enough to keep the soil moist and not wet. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants.
