Aechmea nudicaulis v. cuspidata ‘Rafa’

Out of Stock

This is one outstanding plant! A dark-chocolate colored plant with silver banding that Ray Coleman and I brought from Brazil a few years ago. The leaves are stiff and spiny in a tubular shape with the definitive ‘thumb print’ in the side. Just recently this plant was given a cultivar name by Eloise Beach, who called it ‘Rafa‘ after Rafael Oliveira deFaria who originally collected it near Sao Fidelis in Rio de Janeiro state, in 2001.
