Vriesea hieroglyphica

Out of Stock

A Brazilian native that lives up to its reputation as a spectacular foliage plant called ‘The King of Bromeliads’, is nothing short of spectacular when grown to its full potential. Wide leaves (to over 6 inches when mature) are a lovely green, marked with chocolate-brown reticulations. At maturity it may reach an impressive four feet in diameter, but is a slow grower. This plant, unfortunately, is being stripped from the forests surrounding its native Rio de Janeiro, where it is much in demand for landscape use. Ideal for terrariums when young as it is not a fast grower, Vriesea hieroglyphica, The King! (I’ll bet you thought it was Elvis!)
