This fluffy Lace Fern comes from South Africa and although always referred to as a fern, it is actually a member of the Lily family.
I have long, wiry stems with super fine ferns, like lace thread. Initially, I am quite bushy but I'll lean out as I grow older.
As it matures it loses its early bushy look and throws out tendrils that give it the potential to climb. It may even sprout flowers in late summer which turn into purple berries.
Growing pot size: 12cm
Overall plant height including growing pot: 25-30cm
Pets: Not considered toxic, but it can grow little berries that are inedible, best kept away from pets and children.

The Lace Fern Story
Also known as common asparagus fern, asparagus grass, climbing asparagus, or ferny asparagus
Where is it from?
Native to South Africa. Some say that they were brought to Europe in the 1600s. They then became popular in greenhouses and conservatories of the European elite.
Is The Lace Fern The Right Plant For Me?
Not a plant that you see often as a houseplant. When its delicate feathery foliage grows big enough, it resembles a canopy.
If you give it frequent watering, a moist warm place, and indirect sunlight, this plant will thrive in your home!
How tall does it grow? It is fast-growing and easy to care for and can reach a height of 2.5m unless pruned.
Fact: Although I'm always referred to as a fern (because of my appearance) I am actually a member of the Lily family.
