Product Details

Highlights

Deuterocohnia brevifolia (previously known as Abromeitiella brevifolia) (Spencer & Smith): A unique bromeliad native to Bolivia and Argentina. Each rosette of spiky, silver green leaves stays under 3.0" wide, but they offset readily and after many years can develop into a large, dense hummock. This species also makes an easy houseplant as it can tolerate slightly lower, indoor light conditions. It tends to bloom in winter with small, greenish, tubular flowers.

PLEASE NOTE: Leaves have very spiny tips and edges. Handle with caution.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
