Cryptanthus Bromeliad

$15.00

Cryptanthus bromeliads, more commonly known as earth stars due to the rosette-shaped arrangement of the leaves and their low growth habit, are beautiful and incredibly varied plants native to Brazil.

Like most bromeliads, Cryptanthus species are mostly grown for their interesting leaves, but they also produce small but beautiful white or pink blooms. The plants bloom only once, however, before the plant produces offsets (pups) and then dies.

Plants and pots sold separately.

Bright indirect light.

Water weekly, allowing the soil to dry out between watering.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

Unlike many bromeliads, Cryptanthus plants are generally terrestrial only, which means that they naturally grow in a soil medium rather than being "air plants" that can be mounted to a piece of bark or another object.
