juncus spiralis

Question
My plant use to spiral up now it is drooping and also has a few brown coils, What do i need to do ?

Answer
Lennea,

Corkscrew rush generally goes dormant in the fall/winter because of the shorter days. It's blades will brown out. It also dislikes low humidity. Indoors, it should sit in a humidity tray, and would benefit from being misted frequently.

It like a slightly acidic soil and should be fertilized every couple of months with Miracid or another acidic fertilizer. It is a water plant and lives at the edges of ponds or swamps. It is one of the few plants that can sit in a draintray full of water or go into a self watering pot. If it goes totally dormant keep it moist but you can move it to a cooler location. It can survive outdoors year around in a moist location The following site has a lot of personal experiences with this plant. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/55269/ Good luck!
