This is a long lasting bloom of coral and yellow with the plant itself being a beautiful silver similar to Aechmea fasciata. Offering is for a nice size pup which we try to ship in a 14" shoe box but often have to extend this length. Grows in almost full sun in South Florida, but does appreciate and look better in partial sun. Nice patio plant which can be brought into a sunny area in the winter for those in a more northern climate. This plant is not so little when mature often reaching 30 to 36"
