About 18 inches tall, wide leaves about 4 inches at the widest point. I bought it at at a farmers market this Saturday. The lady selling it said it is one of many baby plants from her grandfathers plant which he always called a snake plant. The off shoots will grow roots in soil and it is supposed to get single large oink flowers when it blooms. She said to bring it inside for winter. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks Laura, the idea about putting the baby plants in separate places is great! I’ll post pictures of flowers if I get any. It has survived almost a week with me, so here’s hoping!

    Although I have not grow Callisia, according to sources they are pretty tough and easy plants. The link below said ‘half-shady situation’. I found in my gardening experiences, half day with morning sun is best for most plants. Maybe with the new baby plants, you can try different spots in your garden and see which one thrives best. Congrats on a very good find at ‘farmers market’. Laura

    With its flowers, I’m guessing this might be a type roselings plants (Callisia), perhaps Callisia warszewicziana? According to sources, its syn. Hadrodemas warszewiczianum. Maybe you can post again when its blooms. Best wishes!
