Info

Ruby red and dark bronze stripes run down each leaf of this beautiful miniature bromeliad. Use this easy to grow and colorful plant as a groundcover under indoor plants, in the front of mixed containers, and in terrariums. Rarely exceeds 4" high and readily multiplies. Cryptanthus are one of the easiest terrestrial bromeliads to grow. Provide with a well-drained soil, average moisture, and high humidity. High light levels, but not direct sun, will produce the most intense foliage colors, colored forms may pale or even turn green under low light levels.
