Araeococcus flagellifolius

Out of Stock

A most unusual looking bromeliad, native to most of tropical South America where it grows as an epiphyte. A clustering plant about 30 inches tall (can reach 48 inches!) with whip-like leaves and a bulbous base about an inch in diameter. The habit is erect and slightly arching, forming a tassel-like cluster. The leaf color is reddish, growing deeper red in bright light. The inflorescence is a short panicle of berries that forms low in the foliage and hangs out to the side. A clump in bloom is an attractive sight. An oddity for sure, but has great appeal as a pot or basket plant and belongs in every bromeliad collection.
