Please help – Spiral plant ID?


Its always interesting to see weird and cool plants. But then again when you get them at obscure locations, there’s never any information with them. This looks like a type of marsh grass particularly because it drinks alot of water. So now I have it sitting in water on the bottom portion. The foliage is somewhat rigid. But still cant find any information on what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks



Green, curly Corkscrew Plant

Corkscrew Plant
Corkscrew Rush

The name of your plant is Corkscrew Grass (Corkscrew Plant, Corkscrew Rush), aka Juncus effusus “Spiralis.”

This is an easy care plant that likes bright lightVery few houseplants should be placed in direct sun. High light refers only to bright indirect light since direct sun often burns the leaves of indoor houseplants. An area that is too hot and dry encourages Spider Mites and causes blooms to quickly fade. A northern exposure really doesn't provide enough light for high light plants. These plants need to be placed directly in front of an east-facing window, within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, and within 5 ft. of a south facing window. A high light area has over 300 ft. candles of light.. It likes quite a bit of moisture and a nutrient rich soil. Perfect in containers and in any water setting. It self seeds and needs aggressive pruning in the spring.

Great plant!
