Asparagus merry fern



Asparagus fern, also known as Asparagus densiflorus ‘Sprengeri,’ is a popular houseplant appreciated for its delicate, feathery foliage. It’s not a true fern but belongs to the asparagus family.

The Asparagus Merry Fern is a popular choice for adding a touch of greenery and elegance to your indoor or outdoor spaces. Proper fertilization, the right accessories, and regular care can help keep it healthy and visually appealing.

Plant Description

  • Appearance: The Asparagus Merry Fern features fine, needle-like, dark green foliage that resembles soft, cascading fern fronds. It produces long, arching stems covered in these small, feathery leaves, creating a lush and elegant appearance.
  • Size: Merry Ferns can vary in size but are typically compact, making them suitable for hanging baskets, container gardens, or as a ground cover in some outdoor settings.
  • Growth Habit: The plant’s trailing growth habit, along with its graceful and airy appearance, makes it a favorite choice for decorative purposes.


  • Frequency: Fertilize your Asparagus Merry Fern during the growing season (spring and summer) to promote healthy growth and maintain its lush appearance. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
  • Fertilizer Type: Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer with a formulation like 10-10-10 or a specialized houseplant fertilizer. Dilute the fertilizer to half strength and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Application: Apply the diluted fertilizer to the soil during the active growing season. Avoid getting fertilizer on the foliage, as this can cause leaf burn.


  1. Hanging Basket or Container: Consider growing your Asparagus Merry Fern in a hanging basket or decorative container. Hanging baskets with drainage holes work well to accommodate the plant’s trailing habit. You can choose a pot that complements your decor and enhances the overall aesthetic.
  2. Potting Mix: Use a well-draining potting mix with good aeration. A mix designed for houseplants or container gardening should work well.
  3. Watering Can with a Long Spout: A watering can with a long, narrow spout helps you deliver water directly to the root zone without disturbing the foliage.
  4. Saucer or Drip Tray: If you have your fern in a container, place a saucer or drip tray beneath it to catch excess water and prevent spills.
