It’s like tiny green feathers growing out of your planter! The asparagus is a soft, gracious and airy plant famous for its subtle and wild beauty. The thin stems and needle-like leaves make the plant look like a miniature fairytale pine forest. Despite its delicious name, the asparagus plant isn’t edible; this plant was made to be stared at for hours on end!
The asparagus likes humidity, so make sure the soil is always slightly moist (but not soaking wet). Misting is allowed but not necessary, and the plant is strong enough to survive a week or two without water.
Keep your asparagus happy in a dark or shady spot with enough fresh air. Since he loves humidity, the asparagus is the perfect plant for your bathroom or kitchen.
You can repot your plant right after purchase, but it’s best to wait until spring or summer. If your plant is young, repot him once a year. Older plants are fine being repotted once every two years. Standard soil is fine, but do make sure to damage the roots as little as possible when repotting your plant.
