I did a quick search and come up with this ;

a bit expensive, but should not be to hard to get in the forrest for free, at least in Sweden. According to my dictionary "ming fern" translates to the swedish word ormbunke.. But when looking at this picture, it does not look like it ... :( guess there is several different types..

It seems that the particular species being mentioned is Asparagus retrofractus which it is native to South Africa and Nambia but is grown as a house plant the world over.
Failure is just success rounded down.
