Urn Plant | Aechmea fasciata 'Griffe'

My star quality is the long-lasting pink flower I produce, which contrasts nicely with my surrounding grey-green marbled foliage. In the wild, I naturally grow on the branches of trees.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to Brazil.

Height/Growth

I grow to about 46cm high.

Light

I like bright, indirect light.

Water

Water me via the well at my centre, and keep it topped up over the growing season (once every week-fortnight). In winter keep me on the dry side and water directly into my soil. Keep humidity up by misting.

Temperature

I really like the warmth, so temperatures between 18-24 degrees are ideal for me.

Feeding

I like a very week liquid feed every month or so over the growing season, which can be poured into my rosette or well.

Grooming

Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust.

Care

As a bromeliad, once my flower fades, it won't come back. However, I will produce offsets (pups) at the base section which can be propagated when they reach about 15cm tall. Read about a similar plant - Aechmea 'Blue Rain'.

Toxicity

I am not known to be toxic.

Fact

I was given the common name 'Urn Plant' because the way my leaves form supposedly makes me look like an urn - naturally I was a Victorian favorite!
