Here's one of my very many favorites,this plant thrives outside in the summer sun!

My Spot light plant is the ASPARAGUS FERN.There are several different varieties and all are relatively easy to care for.In my collection I have the Emerald Fern and the Foxtail Fern.Do not confuse the Asparagus Fern with the more difficult "True Ferns",or the vegtable for that matter:-)
Asparagus ferns have needle like branches and are much more easy to grow then a regular fern.They can adapt to many differnt variations in heating and lighting.The Asparagus Fern is definitely one of my favorites.

Care Requirements....
Average warmth,
Bright or semi shady conditions-no direct sunlight,
Regular watering during the growing season,An occasional misting is good particularily in heated rooms during winter.

SPECIAL PROBLEMS with ASPARAGUS FERNS...
Yellowing foliage,Brown edged,or scorched,Leaf drop:
caused by too much sun or compost was allowed to dry out to long.
If there is no scorching then the cause could either be high temperatures or not enough light.

Asparagus fern has needlike foliage and beautiful green arching branches.
