How to care for Sam

Isolepis cernua or Fibre Optic Grass is an evergreen outdoor plant that produces tiny little silver flowers at the end of their grass like leaves to create an almost fibre optic look. Though the leaves very much look like grass, this is not a grass-type plant. This easy to care for plant works great as filler in large ornamental containers with other plants mixed in or as border edging in gardens. It's to be considered an annual in colder climates but can be brought indoors in a shiny spot in winter. It prefers to be in moist soil at all times and likes to be in full sun to partial sun. As the growth matures it will start to droop gracefully to create a nice full look with upright growth in the the middle, sloping downward further near the edges of the plant. If the plant grows too long and leggy you an simply trim it and the growth will come right back!

Oh no. I am sold out! :(
