The Plumosa fern, also known as Asparagus fern, is one of the easiest houseplants to grow for beginners.
The gorgeous rich green and feathery foliage give it a distinctive airy look.
Although the Plumosa fern looks a lot like a fern, it belongs to the Asparagaceae family and is not classified as a true fern.
The plant is scientifically known as Asparagus setaceus or Asparagus plumosus according to NC State University.
Plumosa Fern Care
The Plumosa fern can tolerate various soil types but prefers loose, well-aerated, and consistently moist soil. 4-6 hours of bright indirect light are all it needs. Water frequently every time the top 2 inches (5cm) of soil dry out. Optimum growing temperatures are 65-80°F (18-26°C) and humidity above 70%. Fertilize every 4 weeks in spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer diluted to 1/4 of its strength.
