Other Aechmea Species And Related Plants
Author: Celeste BoothNo Comments
Many other species of Aechmea are seen in collections and at shows, but being tempted to buy an unknown plant, you should find out its ultimate size; some may grow to 3 ft (90cm) or more in diameter and could become an embarrassment in a small greenhouse or home.
Other plants related to Aechmea are encountered from time to time, such as Hohenbergia, Portea and Streptocalyx. These too tend to be rather large for the average grower and mostly require a winter temperature of 60 degrees F (15 degrees C).
