Re: fern ID

Has anyone mentioned this fern is maybe Asparagus setaceus (syn. Asparagus 
plumosus)?? "These plants do not climb while they are growing, but they do when 
mature. The very thin, threadlike pale green phyllodes, (are) up to 6mm long, 
and the terminal branches spread horizontally or are slightly curved. They 
resemble a number of fern species. The flowers are white, the berries purple. 
'Nanus' is smaller in it's parts, and 'Cristatus' has a cyprus-like habit."   
..from an old "Encyclopedia of Houseplants".  Kathyz5
