Long arching stems with light green 'leaves' (cladophylls) of the Sprengeri asparagus make an excellent hanging basket For best results as potted houseplants, asparagus ferns should be placed in indirect or filtered light. Asparagus ferns perform best in organically rich, well-drained soil. Drought-tolerant once they're established in the garden, the plants should be kept evenly moist.
If you grow asparagus ferns as houseplants, you can move them outdoors to a shaded porch in warmer months. They don't require periods of winter dormancy but appreciate a rest and reduced watering during the winter months.
