Callisia fragrans (Basket plant) is an easy-care houseplant that will bring an exotic feel to your rooms or porch. These greenies look similar to bromeliads, grow long, hardy leaves, and produce aromatic white flowers, so they really do have everything you could look for in an exotic houseplant.
Callisia fragrans is native to South America and Mexico and goes by many names. It got its “Basket plant” name from its flowers that look like they are placed in little “baskets.” Callisia fragrans grows long leaves reaching up to 35 inches (89 cm) in length. Basket plants have medicinal properties such as antioxidant and antibacterial powers. Like many other houseplants, they also purify the air in the room.
