Bright-green feathery fronds give the Sprengeri Fern its distinctive look. This plant features reaching vines covered in spines or wispy foliage, which contrasts large-leaf plants nicely. Also known as Asparagus aethiopicus, Sprenger's asparagus, and asparagus fern, use this plant to add a burst of greenery and texture to a space. Give this plant the care and attention it needs, and it will quickly fill in and put its lacy fronds on full display.

Best Locations For Growing Sprengeri Fern

A warm area with increased humidity is best for Sprengeri Fern. Lots of moisture in the air will keep the lacey fronds lush, vibrant, and green. Place the Sprengeri Fern in a brightly lit bathroom, kitchen, or porch. You can grow this plant in dry areas, but be prepared to use a pebble tray or humidifier to help this fern feel at home.

Sprengeri Fern Sunlight Requirements

Sprengeri Fern can be grown as an outdoor plant, but it also makes a lovely houseplant. Plants grown indoors have different care needs. Asparagus ferns grown inside need bright indirect light. A well-lit area will help the plant settle in and push out long and full vines.

Sprengeri Fern Care

Under the right conditions, the Asparagus fern grows very fast. Prune the plant if it is outgrowing your space. Use clean sheers to remove excess foliage at the base. Repot often as the thick, tuberous roots of the Sprengeri Fern can quickly outgrow its pot. Divide the plant when repotting by gently separating the roots. The divisions can be repotted in the same-sized pots. Plants that are not divided should receive a larger pot.

Watering Sprengeri Fern

Plants grown in high humidity will not need water often. Increased dampness in the air will keep this fern hydrated—water when the top inch of the soil is dry.

Feeding Sprengeri Fern

Feed Sprengeri Fern using balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Apply plant food monthly when the plant is pushing out new growth. Plants do not need to be fed when they are not actively growing, which can happen during the winter.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
