Earth Star - Pink

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Happy | Interesting | Unique

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.

Water: Keep soil moist, but do not allow for standing water. Water once the top inch or so of soil is dry. Mist often. 

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.
