While they love a lot of sunlight, they don't like direct sunlight very much in the beginning. Keep the plant 2 to 3 meters away from the window in the beginning. The older the plant gets, the closer you can put them to the window. Be careful in the summer if to the window, it can quickly get too hot. In the winter, on the other hand, they like to get a warm spot by the window.

These ferns do best in soil that is always slightly moist, without a layer of water at the bottom of the pot. When it doesn't get enough water, it will lose its fresh green color, or even turn brown. But it is also resilient, so don’t give up right away. Try to avoid it getting dry, and if it does, please water it quickly to help its chances of bouncing back.


In its natural habitat, the Asparagus Plumosus Nana grows on the bottom in the shade of other trees and plants. Therefore it prefers shady spots. It can tolerate quite cool temperatures, but try to avoid it getting colder than 10 degrees.

Lily of the Nile care guide:

This plant is quite easy to care for. It likes a good sip of water once in a while, but its roots shouldn't be left soaking in water. When it don’t get enough water, it loses its fresh green color and droops. If you want a fantastic bloom then a good feed alongside the water will do just the trick. 


When it comes to temperatures, this plant is pretty hardy and even likes being outside.  Avoid temperatures below 5 degrees, but otherwise, find a spot it will fit best. We particularly like that it is evergreen so it will have beautiful leaves all year round.
