Family: Bromeliaceae

New! This is an interesting miniature terrestrial bromeliad native to Bolivia and Argentina with small rosettes of silvery-green bristly triangular leaves. As it grows, it slowly forms a tight rounded pillow-shaped colony of hundreds of rosettes creating an unusual and distinctive potted plant. It usually blooms in winter or early spring with small tubular greenish flowers. Plant it in a cactus type potting soil with good drainage. Give it a sunny or bright light position and water moderately in the warm months, letting the soil dry between waterings. It is fairly cold hardy, but does not like to be wet in the winter. It can also be grown as a ground cover in suitable climates.
