Also called Grass Lily, because of its ribbon-shaped leaves and because long shoots with small white flowers form every year.
After flowering, small baby plants grow on the long offshoots. This makes Chlorophytum a graceful hanging plant. Prefer an upright plant? Then cut off the shoots prematurely at the heart.
The white leaf edges become more intense in a light spot. Avoid direct sunlight, though, as the leaves may turn brown. The ideal temperature is between 18 and 25°C.
