Origins: Manmade hybrid

Bloom: Short, compound inflorescence with multiple bracts that blush red and produce purple flowers

Light: Strong indirect or filtered light

Ideal for: Indoors/Outdoors

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary.  Be sure to thoroughly dry plant if submerged in water so water doesn't get trapped in the base

 

Awesome little hybrid with a bulbous base, wavy leaves, and a slight scurf towards the base.  Genetics of both parents are present, even in the bloom.  I have not been able to grow this plant very big, which may be some bulbosa genetics coming through, but also could be environmental as this cultivar would prefer a humid environment

plant pictured is larger and more mature than what you will receive, pups are currently available and leaves are still straight, will start to twist and curve as they mature
