This is a terrestrial bromeliad. It has stiff, arching thin ribbons of silver leaves, with touches of green and purple, that form an untidy 4” tall clump slowly stretching to 10” wide. When mature it has yellow flowers on a 8″ stem. Bloom time is April/May.
Full sun and well-drained soil.
By division. The plant had two bunches when purchased. I divided them, but that may have been a mistake because one of them had very little system attached. Hopefully there was enough that it can get re-established.
