This Cryptanthus bivittatus is a bromeliad, which is also known as an Earth Star. It is a compact, flat plant that comes in a variety of colours - all with a hint of pink.
They are easy to grow and make a great plant for beginners. They love humidity which makes them a great plant to pop in a terrarium.
It is slow to grow and spread outwards rather than grow tall.
Pop your Earth Star houseplant in bright indirect sunlight. As this bromeliad comes from the rainforest, Earth Stars love moisture and a fairly frequent watering schedule helps to keep the plant healthy.
TIP: Never pour the water directly into the centre of the plant as moisture will get trapped in the leaves and cause rot.
Delivered in a 5.5cm plastic pot.
