Aechmea ‘Alice Springs’

Out of Stock

A selection of the species Aechmea aquilega from a Brazilian collection and released by Skotak in 2012. Far superior to the ‘variegated’ clone, with bright ivory margins that blush almost fiery red in strong light. Variegation does not fade with age. The 2.5 inch wide leaves are very stiff and with bright light the leaf tips turn black. The inflorescence is typical of the species; pink bracts and yellow branches. This clone is rare and very difficult to find. Needs bright light to reach optimum color.
