Asparagus Setaceus

Asparagus Setaceus

Pot: 12cm Height: 35cm Position: bright, indirect light
Soil: good potting compost
Rate of growth: average
Hardiness: tender (indoors only)

Initially upright to gently arching, the shoots of this feathery foliage house plant become pendent as they mature, so eventually form a cascading mass of green that looks wonderful tumbling over the edges of a pot or hanging basket.

Home care: Water regularly in the growing season, but less in winter. Mist the leaves with water occasionally - particularly in winter when the central heating is turned on. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter and repot in spring when the plant becomes root-bound.
