what is my plant

jaimelynn_32May 27, 2011

I have a plant that seems like it would have to be in the spider plant family its grows on a stem and the top of it resembles a fire flash and it grows "baby's" just as a spider does the stems that they grow off are a plum color mixed with green as well as the leaves but as they get older they have less plum color i have no idea what it is and have been searching on line for days i have NEVER seen this this plant in any stores or nursery's please help me figure it out

You need to pls. post your pix to a photo-hosting site like Photobucket.com or Flicker, both of which are free. Since I use Photobucket.com myself, I'll tell you how that works.

After you post Photobucket.com, then copy & paste the THIRD LINE of code into here. It'll look like Gibberish until you check in the Preview feature, which (if done correctly) will show the picture. If not correct, pls. try again, sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it right.

Pls., pls., pls. use punctuation in your text. It's difficult & irritating to try to read a multi-line paragraph w/out it; we ARE trying to help you.

Jaime..your plant is Callisia fragrens, common name, Basket Plant.

They grow large and semi-viney. In bright light, leaves turn purple. Too low light, leaves remain green and can grow spindly.

You're lucky you found one...the last few I've seen for sale are super-expensive. Good luck, Toni
