 Lithachne humilis
Family: Poaceae
Bambusoid Grass, Mother of Bamboo
Origin: Honduras
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

A wonderful little plant, unusual among grasses. It folds leaves sharply downwards at night. One of the rarest plants in existance. It is technically a Bamboosoid grass which genetic studies have shown to be the original mother of all modern bamboo species!

It is easy to grow given bright light or even deep shade.

Characteristically tiny nutty seeds are easy to grow. The plant remains very rare since the new species was described by Tom Soderstrom from an obscure locality deep in the forests of Honduras.

See article about this plant.
