We've heard these plants referred to as "sloth claw," or even compared to a velociraptor's claw! While these are both pretty funny, they couldn't be more spot on. Typically, the foliage of T. seleriana grows tightly together in a curved fashion when young, resembling both of those comparisons, and opens up with age.
While it is one of our favorite plants, it is one that isn't seen too commonly in the trade. We love to put a group of 5 or so of them in a bowl on the table when we have company over. They're quite the conversation piece!
