Aechmea gamosepala is a bromeliad endemic to southern Brazil. It is often cultivated as an ornamental plant.

Common name: Bromeliad , Lucky Stripe , Variegated Matchstick Bromeliad
Color: Violet
Bloom time: Seasonal bloomer
Height: 0.75 to 1.50 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
This winter-blooming bromeliad (ht 50cm) comes from Brazil. Its blooms are thick bristles of purplish-pink bracts tipped with iridescent blue bead-like flowers: the whole effect is of a bunch of surreal-looking matchsticks.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 15 and 25 degrees C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • The pink bracts are an exact match for the winter-blooming shrub Ruellia macrantha (pictured above left), so these can be paired for an attractive garden picture.
  • Its blue flower tips are an exact colour match for Salvia rubiginosa, which is in bloom at the same time.


Special Feature:
Houseplant for warm and humid areas.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
No serious insect or disease problems. Watch for aphids, thrips and scale. Rot may develop if soil is kept too moist.
