Description for Chlorophytum Borivilianum

It is cultivated and eaten as a leaf vegetable in some parts of India, and its roots are used medicinally as a sex tonic under the name safed musli. The medicinal value is thought to derive from its saponin content, up to 17 percent by dry weight.

It has also recently been suggested that it may produce an aphrodisiac agent. As medicinal demand has increased, the plant has been brought under cultivation. The saponins and alkaloids present in the plant are the source of its alleged aphrodisiac properties
In traditional Indian medicine it is used as 'Rasayan' or adaptogen

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
safed musli,musli Greenish-white, white. Flowers freely Plants grow up to 1 ft (30 cm) tall, with stems trailing to 3 ft (90 cm) in length. Easy.

Planting and care

Chlorophytum comosum grows very well in cultivation. Its ornamental, gracefully ascending-spreading to recurved leaves in a central rosette make it so popular.
The many pups or vegetative plant-lets are usually given away by the owners and this has resulted in the species being one of the most commonly used and popular house plants throughout the world.
The white-striped cultivars are probably more often grown than the original plant. In the garden it grows best under trees or on shady embankments, especially in gardens in the Indian Ocean Coastal Belt. It is a fast grower.
In other parts of the world it can also be grown out-of-doors, but is best cultivated in Mediterranean-type gardens where frost is not too severe (parts of California and the Mediterranean).

The plant prefers partial shade, especially in hot dry climates. It should therefore be protected from full sun.
Plants should reach flowering size within a year.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Bright natural light but they will sunburn if grown in direct sunlight. Well-drained soil. Keep soil evenly moist. If your tap water contains fluoride, use distilled or rainwater. Average room temps 65-75F/18-24C suit this tropical plant perfectly. It doesn t like the cold; don t expose it to anything below 50F/10C. Feed every 2 weeks spring through summer with a liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Caring for Chlorophytum Borivilianum

    The young plants when rooted can be replanted and transplanted outdoors and used summer bedding, but when planted this way they will need protection from direct sun. Keep it well fed and pot-bound. When its stems fill the pot, and when the white, worm like rhizomes bulge over the surface, it can divided easily.
