Chlorophytum macrophyllum

Chlorophytum macrophyllum
Chlorophytum macrophyllum Chlorophytum macrophyllum
Stock Number: 40121
Availability: In Stock
Family: Liliaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

Wide rosette of glossy ribbon leaves; club-shaped inflorescence of white starry flowers emerging from odd green bracts; one of the giant "Tropic Plantain" without plantlets forming on outarching stolons; however the occassional plantlet emerges on the short stout erect flower spikes as they ripen. This eventually needs a large pot to accommodate the mass of fleshy roots--and, yes, it will probably outlive the lot of us.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
