It is like a spider plant. It will produce a 'cascade' of plants on these runners. I think this is the only Cryptanthus that develops in this manner.

This plant also had blooms earlier in summer. I will see if I can find a photo of the blooms to post here. Kristi

This type of plant is new to me, the only ones I have ever seen around here are the small ones that are somewhat pinkish
Thanks for the information

You are welcome. There are so many different ones and that will be my downfall when I try to fit them in the greenhouse in the fall. lol Kristi
