Cryptanthus bivittatus 'Red Star'

$ 7.00
Size

Cryptanthus bivittatus 'Red Star' is a terrestrial Bromeliad with beautiful red-tinged foliage. Cryptanthus are related to Bromeliads and are commonly called Earth Stars. While most other bromeliads have very small, unimportant root systems, Cryptanthus are unique in that they only grow terrestrially in soil with more extensive root systems. Cryptanthus share a lifecycle with other plants in the family Bromeliaceae; after growing many small flowers, the mother plant will use energy to grow multiple "pups," or offsets, that will slowly replace the original plant.

PLANT CARE

Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Keep soil evenly moist, but not fully saturated
• Considerations: Place plant in an ambiently humid spot such as a bathroom, or otherwise offer supplementary misting between waterings. Brighter light increases intensity of red foliage

Gorgeous baby plant

I bought this little gem for our bathroom and it is the perfect fit! I had never ordered plants online before and expected them to be a little rough from the trip when they arrived, but they were in perfect condition. The packaging was all recyclable or compostable which I also loved. I couldn't be happier with all the little plants I received; everything was even better than expected!

In love with my beautiful Ruby Star

I’m so happy with all the plants I’ve bought from Pistils Nursery. I really can’t say enough good things about them. My Ruby Star arrived very carefully and well packed. It looks so healthy and is very happy in her new home in Florida. Thank you Pistils for the beautiful plants
