Homalocladium platycladium is a true curiosity in the plant world. This plant is more or less leafless. Its growth is that of flat, segmented green stems about 1cm wide. These odd stems radiate upwards to a height of 1-2m tall but can be kept compact by pruning.
In late autumn, small greenish white flowers are borne at the stem joints followed by a tiny red fruit.
Suitable for full sun to shade it makes a unique indoor plant. Drought tolerant, but for best results should be kept moist.
