Acorus Houseplants Care and Propagation
Grassy leaved sweet flag (Acorus griminess) can be grown indoors as a houseplant. The plant grows from a rhizome that is located just below the soil. The Acorus can grow up to 18 inches long.
Acorus needs medium light or light that is filtered through a thin curtain.
Never allow the Acorus to dry out. Keep the soil moist at all times. The houseplant will tolerate standing in a dish of shallow water.
Fertilize once every two weeks during the spring and summer months.
To propagate, remove the plant from the pot and pull the clumps apart. Replant each clump, making sure there is a rhizome within each cluster.
