Corkscrew Rush

Will Corkscrew Rush come back if severely dried out? Has not been watered in months! Appears totally fried!

ANSWERS

Since these are considered "water lovers," I would think that drying for months would pretty much do it in. However, you can always cut off the dry foliage, water the dried out roots, and see what happens. Often, plants surprise us.

Corkscrew Rush

How do I remove brown fronds? Pull them out or cut near base or neither?

I personally trim my with a sharp, clean garden clipper.
Pulling them can dislodge the roots.

Twisted Juncus Corkscrew Rush

My plant had been looking great until about a week ago. A lot of the spiral stems are brown, but I have some that are still green. What can I do to bring this plant back to health? What am I doing wrong? I am growing it in a pot inside my house.

This plant needs full sun.

Try to find the brightest spot in your home. It may need an outdoor location to properly grow and thrive.

Corkscrew Grass

I bought a corkscrew plant in a pot with flowers ,the corkscrew plant was all curly but now its straight grass I did not cut it back at fall could that be the reason it is now straight

Generally you can trim the grass back in the Spring, just before the new growth starts.
As the grass gets longer and taller, you should see the twists and corkscrew effect return.

Perennial Corkscrew grass does need to be well watered.

Corksrew Plant Is Growing Straight

I bought I corkscrew plant at Lowes it was really neat it was all curly but ,now it is all straight grass what did I do for this to happen ? Thanks annwestervelt@hotmail.com

ANSWERS

Are the leaves still green or did they turn brown? Some of them will be straighter than others and it's nothing to worry about as long as they're still green, and if it's outside in a colder zone it's normal for the leaves to turn brown.

Compare your sunlight and soil situation with the recommendations in this article:

Corkscrew Vine

What parts of a Corkscrew vine are poisonous

ANSWERS

Certified GKH Gardening Expert

In my research I found very conflicting information. Some list the bark of the plant.
To be safe, assume all parts could be toxic.

Do not allow cats and dogs to chew on your corkscrew vine.
