|Though this plant is not a true fern, it is often used both indoors and out much the same way one would use traditional ferns. Stems are green and arching and may grow to a length of 3 to 4 feet long and have shiny needles that are also bright green.
Most commonly grown as a hanging basket, the plant adds an airy effect to tropical areas where temperatures stay above 24 degrees F. Grow in full sun or part shade. Will tolerate poor, dry soil. Must have bright light if grown indoors.
This plant will have red berries and is sometimes unpopular because of the small barbs on stems. Cut back to ground to rejuvenate plant.
