How do I plant an asparagus fern ?

At a recent seed swap, I acquired asparagus fern tubers. I have always admired my friend's hanging plant. I have many ceiling hooks in my sunroom left by previous owner who must have loved either 1970-1980's swag lamps or a lot of hanging house plants..how do I plant these tubers in a hanging pot; how many tubers per pot, what type of soil do I use, etc.? I'd one a search but everything seems to be more negetive about this indoor plant than positive. Is there a right way or wrong way to plant the tubers? How deep do I plant them?

Pippi, I tried finding an answer to your question.
First, I have to ask you a question. Do the tubers have roots or any growth? Toni

Yes, they have roots, Do I use any special potting mix?
