Asparagus setaceus is one of the plants originating from South Africa that is best adapted to living inside homes. It has very fine stems that give it a very decorative, feathery appearance, to the point that many might think that it is actually a fern.

The flowers, which sprout in summer, measure 0.4cm and are whitish in colour. They are not very showy.

During the summer it should be watered very frequently, three or four times a week; the rest of the year the frequency should be reduced

Pruning:

Dry branches should be removed, and those that have grown too much should be trimmed.

The best time to fertilize it is during spring and summer; it should be fertilized with a universal fertilizer for green plants.
