Unique, Twisted Houseplant

by Charlie Nardozzi


This time of year it’s good to have easy-care houseplants around. In most parts of the country, winter is in full swing and having a touch of indoor greenery helps brighten any day. While many houseplants struggle this time of year to survive growing in low-light conditions indoors, one of the easiest to grow is the mother-in-law tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata). This houseplant grows 2 feet tall and has thick, pointy, green leaves with yellow margins. It grows slowly and thrives on neglect. It can grow in low-light conditions and requires infrequent watering.

Now comes a new selection of this old favorite. ‘Twist’ grows only 14 inches tall. The leaves are uniquely twisted and spiral upward. It makes a statement with its shape, while still having the same low-maintenance qualities as the original species.
