This plant grows trailing, needle-like leaves, so it works well homed in a hanging basket. The Asparagus Fern is also great for removing toxins from the air.
Mature Asparagus Ferns will grow flowers in summer, and these are occasionally followed by berries - but don't be tempted to eat them, as they're poisonous.
The Asparagus Fern likes humid conditions, so treat its leaves to a misting. If it goes brown and wilted, give it some more water. If you've overwatered your plant you can expect to see yellowing leaves, but fear not! Ferns can be easily saved with a quick trim. Also, rotate a quarter turn regularly to ensure it grows evenly.
