Faye, an Asparagus Fern, Asparagus Setaceus, or Lace Fern, isn't the most affectionate of plants. No really, she doesn't like being touched - in fact, she'll turn brown just to make a point!


Native to South Africa, Faye typically grows in the shadows of larger trees deep in humid forests, and believe it or not, she isn't actually a fern - she was just named so because she looks so fern-like!


If Faye is happy, she'll flower in the spring with small bell-shaped blooms that will eventually give way to tiny green berries. 

Faye, Asparagus Fern - Small

  • Faye prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
