The trachyandra is an exotic plant that you would love to own. Its spiral leaves are attractive and make anyone fall in love with the plant instantly. Its origin can be traced to a genus of plants similar to Albuca. The albuca genus has over 100 species, most of which can be found in South Africa. However, the majority of the trachyandra species are from the Western Cape of Africa.

Trachyandras are perennials and have very fleshy leaves which are sometimes hairy. They are mainly small and shrub-like. Their leaves are springy and very unique. Sometimes, they have white star-shaped flowers, All these unique features make them a desirable option for collectors. — Planted Shack
