It's a fabulous home! I think the plant is an Asparagus Fern...I use them in arrangements all the time.
It IS a type of asparagus fern--but if you Google "asparagus fern" you'll be more likely to come up with asparagus sprengerii or plumosa, than this little guy--which is commonly known as a "Ming Fern". (Also, apparently, "Dill Fern"--although I see "Ming" more often. :)It's easy to grow, (as are the other two asparagus ferns I mentioned), grows REALLY fast, and has sharp thorns that you have to be careful of. It doesn't tolerate neglect very well, but if you're regular with watering it, it's lovely.It is, however, harder to find than some of the other asparagus ferns...ALTHOUGH--Cowboyflowerman on eBay, of Secret Garden Rare Plants had some for sale, last week. (I would know--I bought several!) http://www.ebay.com/itm/ASPARAGUS-MYRIOCLADUS-MING-OR-DILL-FERN-LARGE-SPECIMEN-IN-6-POT-/380443884742 (That one looks a bit faded in color--the green in the photos you've posted are more accurate. It's a very, very, pretty and airy plant. :))
I was feeling so clever identifying your plant as an asparagus fern, but I see I'm late to the party. Still, what a place to have a party (and I love the idea of a house designed to be shared in this way, separate but equal).
i love the look! definitely something i would want for myself.
Beautiful and thank you for posting it :]
Love the house and all the clean and luxurious details! The mirrors are amazing and the hall, too. Take a look at this one: http://www.bocadolobo.com/le/marie_antoniete.htmlDo you like it? Or is it too much?
@Aurora and Tricia Rose - THANK YOU! I will definitely be purchasing one of these lovely little plants :)
It's Ming Fern if you want to be precise! (A type of asparagus fern) I'm a florist and use it all the time.It's quite spindily in the pic, but grows quite compact in the hot houses. If the leaves (little spikes) get wet they turn brittle and drop all over the place like a green snowstorm!
Ooopps, should have read the other comments first..... :/
@Steph - no problem :) Thanks for the info!
