Callisia is a genus of perennial, evergreen plants that belong to the family Commelinaceae. The genus includes several species which are native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. They are commonly known as Inch Plants, Chain Plants, or Basket Plants.
Callisia Plants can be identified by their small, delicate, white flowers. They have small, round, or oval leaves that are arranged alternately on the stem. The leaves are often used to create living chains or beads, which is why it is also commonly known as a "chain plant". They are also known for their trailing habit, which makes them a great choice for hanging baskets or as a ground cover. They are also commonly used in indoor or terrarium settings.
