How to Care for Spiral Grass Plant – Moraea tortilis

Could you tell me something about a spiral grass plant. Is it hard to take care of? I want to get one, but I travel a lot and can’t be around to water it every few days.

Spiral Grass or Moraea tortilis, a bulb plant, has amazing spiral leaves, makes an excellent houseplant, and can be grown in pots or hanging baskets. Although called a grass, it’s really a low growing plant. Spiral Grass or Corkscrew Grass as it’s also called needs very bright light. It’s also very drought tolerant so doesn’t need constant care. It has succulent light green leaves and gets white or purple green short lived flowers. It’s hard to find this pant to buy, but you can order seeds and grow it from scratch.
