This indoor plant in Manila is native to eastern and southern Africa from central Ethiopia to South Africa. They can mostly be found in forests, grasslands, and roadsides. The Asparagus Fern is now widely available in across tropical and subtropical regions of the world.
This Asparagus Fern in Manila thrives best in bright – medium indirect sunlight. Keep it out of direct sunlight to avoid scorched leaves. They also like their soil well-drained and moist. So suggested watering schedule is once to twice a week so that it doesn’t completely dry out. Make sure that excess water drains and that the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil is dry before watering again. But once established already, it can be drought tolerant as well!
Asparagus Fern can be planted through seeds from its berries. But aside from this, it can be propagated through root division as well. So first, dig up the soil and separate the tuberous roots in different sections. Replant them in their own individual pots and place them in a bright shaded area until new growth is seen. Care for them as you would with a normal Asparagus Fern.
