Cryptanthus fosterianus

Brom280
Specifications
Cryptanthus fosterianus

On the leaf of the Cryptanthus fosterianus is a pattern of white horizontal stripes that make a wavy movement. These Bromeliads remain on the small side. Once a year theybloom with white bright flowers that are quite small but still a nice addition because of the strong contrast to the leaves. In the wild Cryptanthus fosterianus lives on the ground of rainforests, where they can live in the loose soil. After a plant has blossomed, new shoots are formed that take over the mother plant and bloom again the following year.

Product info

This Bromelia from Brazil grows in soil, in contrast to most bromeliads, which grow on trees or rocks with adhesive roots. They can handle with more shade and humidity. For this reason Cryptanthus fosterianus is ideal for use in a terrarium, where they really stand out from the other plants with special brown to red coloured leaves without dominating. Or they can be used to brighten up a bare corner of a room.

Plant care

A loose soil, such as a mix of orchid bark with sphagnum- or peat moss and cocopeat, is ideal for Cryptanthus fosterianus. Water when the top layer of the earth starts to become slightly dry. Give the roots enough space to grow, by using a pot the size of the plant itself. These plants prefer indirect sunlight, but in semi-shade they also do well. The more light the plant reeives, the stronger the red colours can become.
