Aechmea   (Price 45 lt.)

The plants generally have wide, strappy green leaves that sometimes appear to be lightly powdered. Their leaves have backward-curving spines that can be painful, so be careful how you pick them up. Although the plants themselves are beautiful, their long-lasting flowering bracts are stunning. Usually pink, they rise above the plant like a spiky crown, with smaller purple flowers emerging after time. It's not unusual for an aechmea flower spike to last for months. Do not expose to direct sunlight, but they can be acclimated to higher light levels.  Keep water in the central cup.
