Cryptanthus bivittatus 'Pink Starlite'

Description:

Cryptanthus bromeliads, commonly known as Pink Starlite Earth Star, is a spectacular, slow-growing, star-like-shaped bromeliad with striking streaks of suffused green and pink on its elliptic foliage.

Almost a hassle-free plant, it requires minimum care and grows easily under light conditions ranging from bright light indoors to strong filtered light outdoors.

Strong, full sun should be avoided as extreme sunlight causes bleaching.

It prefers a humid environment and a moist, rich and well-drained soil.

Moderately drought tolerant once established.

Pot dimensions:  

Ø8.5cm x H7.5cm

Overall Plant Height:

10-15cm (approx.) Included grower pot

Light:

Bright direct sunlight or filtered light.

Water:

Check and water as needed.

Only water when the soil turns slightly dry to touch.

Fertilizer:

Fertilize with diluted liquid fertilizer at least once a month to encourage growth.

Trimming allows available nutrients in the soil to be transferred into the new leaves which encourage intentional growth.
