The name of the genus is derived from Greek word chloros, ‘green’, phyton, ‘a plant’. The mature leaves hang down over the pot or container and long arching stem with the baby plantlets at the end will flow gracefully above and around the grass-like foliage. They are interesting as they produce long, drooping flower stalks ending in a tuft of leaves forming an offset. The genus has 60 or more species in tropical Asia, Africa and America.
