Care and Culture, Classification
This Brazilian species has a large spike of violet flowers contained in bright orange-red bracts. The florets turn red as they age and are succeeded by round, red, shining berries.
It is one of the soft-leaved types, with 1 ft (30cm) leaves, green on top and with a grey wax-like coating underneath. The variety discolor has dark wine-red leaves. A temperature of 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) is necessary in the winter and rather less light than for most aechmeas.
