Earth Stars are a kind of bromeliad, which usually grow on trees as epiphytes - but not this one! Crypanthus grows naturally in the ground, making it a very unique addition to your collection!
This plant will grow following a rosette pattern, slowly getting larger and larger until it reaches a maximum of about 2 or 3 feet in diameter at which point it may pup.
Lighting: Bright, indirect light. Low light will cause the color to pale.
Water: Allow the soil to dry between waterings. Appreciates higher humidity.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.
Temperature: Room temp (55-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
Toxicity: This plant is non-toxic.
