Likes damp but not moist soil and rotate 1/4 turn every few days to keep the “coiled” leaves.

Goes through phases seasonally where it “dies” and then comes back with straight leaves and then the leaves curl and the stalk grows and then flowers. I love this plant and it lives outside in the summer and inside in winter (Colorado).

I literally love frizzles so much. They’re funky, easy to grow, bloom once a year with weird green flowers. Literally my favorite plant ever.

This Curly Whirly Cutie 🌀🌀🌀is such a fun plant. It likes the sun & will reward you with a long stalk with pretty flowers popping out of the center. Tips of curly leaves will turn brown especially after blooming, but new baby growth will quickly take over & have the brown leaves a distant memory 😉

Very very fragile. The wind knocked it over and it lost all but one “hair.” 😫
