A majestic burst of bushy, tail-like plumes, it is easy to see where this Fern got its name. Bundles of delicate fronds taper off at the tips as they elegantly adorn your space with a sense of quiet calmness. Commonly confused with the plumosa fern, also referred to as an asparagus fern. 

Light: Bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight may scorch the needles, whereas insufficient light may turn them yellow and cause them to drop.

Water: Keep moist at all times, but do not allow to stand in water. Less water is required during the winter but don’t let the soil dry out completely.

Pets: No toxic to animals. May cause skin irritation.

Note** Trimming off the older, thinning or bare fronds in early spring will encourage new growth.

Kingdom: Plantae

Family: Asparagaceae

Genus: Asparagus 

Botanical Name: Asparagus densiflorus Myersii

Common name: Foxtail Fern

Light: Moderate to bright indirect light 

Water: Ferns don't like to dry out, but it's important that they aren't over watered either. Do this by watering with less water- more frequently around every 5 days giving the plant a "top up". The water shouldn't flow through the bottom with this watering protocol  because that is too much water. If you have let the fern dry out too much then certainly give it a thorough water where the water does drain through the bottom.

Fertilizer: With active growth (even in winter) we recommend using a fertilizer based for foliage plants like Dynagro foliage pro, Gaia green 444 or fish fertilizer.
