Asparagus ferns make great house plants. They are not true ferns they just get their common name from the ferny foliage they have. They are in fact related speices to the edible Asparagus. They don't need too much water and like indirect sunlight

Watering: Water more frequently in summer but allow the compost to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly in winter as they do not like sitting in very wet compost. 
Feeding:  Asparagus do not need a great deal of feeding. Feed monthly in summer with a balanced liquid fertiliser such as liquid Growmore or seaweed extract. Do not feed in winter.
Position: Asparagus need bright natural light but do not need to be in direct sunlight all the time. A position close to or on a windowsill will be fine. You may find a south facing windowsill will be too hot in summer. If plants appear to be suffering move them to a cooler position.
Compost & Potting on:  Use a loam based compost (John Innes No.2) and mix in a little grit for drainage. Potting on can be done if the plant has outgrown the pot and should only be done when the in active growth between Spring and Autumn in the UK.
