Rhipsalis species Corupa, SC

Out of Stock

An outstanding rarity from the Amazon basin oft confused with Ae. polyantha because of an early illustration by Margaret Mee.  If you have seen this illustration of a massively bulbous, spiny Aechmea with a multiple-branched panicle of berries, then this is the plant.  Only the name in her book is wrong.

Extremely desirable, this plant remains rare in cultivation and a much sought jewel for collectors. It is not difficult to grow, but is cold tender.  The body of the plant can reach the size and shape of a football with relatively narrow leaves exiting out at right angles.  Fairly heavily armed with stout spines.
