Family: Bromeliaceae

New! This is a vintage Orthophytum bromeliad hybrid by Gary Hendrix of Homestead, Florida from around 1975. It's a cross of Orthophytum saxicola and Orthophytum vagans. It has shiny coppery leaves with greenish centers, colors becoming more intense under bright light and dry growing conditions. The leaves are somewhat soft and grow in a spiral. It multiplies easily with numerous runners, creating a large clump. Give it an epiphytic or succulent type soil mix with grit and bark added for drainage. It's a nice choice for both a succulent or bromeliad collection. Available in 4 inch pots. USDA zones 9b-12.
