This stunning Bromeliad forms an open, upright vase shape with 6-10 matte-green leaves up to 16" long and 3" wide which are marked with fantastic irregular purplish-brown cross-banded stripes edged with heavy dark spines. The inflorescence is arching with a dense panicle of red bracts and yellow petals. This is an epiphyte and one of the best climbing Bromeliads around, quickly forming a colony of dozens of plants growing up a tree. This plant is a must have for any Bromeliad collector. We sell these beauties in 6” pots.
