Care

General Maintenance: Asparagus ferns can be repotted once every couple years, but they will actually do fairly well being a little pot bound. Prune out any dead stems to encourage new growth. 

Temperature: Prefers temperatures around 21° Celsius, and will not withstand temperatures below 13° for long. 

Light: Your plant will appreciate a bit of time in the morning sun, but too much can cause leaf scorching. For most of the day, keep your plant in a bright spot with indirect/filtered sunlight. These plants will do well with a fairly low amount of light, but they thrive best with a bit of sun. 

Watering: Asparagus ferns do not like to dry out, so keep your soil evenly moist at all times. Ensure that your pot has good drainage to avoid your plant getting waterlogged. These plants enjoy some humidity and will do well with being misted every day or two. Water slightly less during the winter. 

Soil: Prefers a light, well-drained, organically rich soil. Something peat-based and mixed with perlite is a good choice. 

Fertilizer: Fertilizing is only truly necessary for these plants if the soil conditions are poor. If you feel the need, you may use a balanced houseplant fertilizer once a month.
