Lepismium cruciforme 'Pink Flowers'
An especially attractive form of L. cruciforme with pretty pink flowers that we obtained originally from the collection of the Marie Selby Botanical Garden. Native to Southeastern Brazil down to Paraguay and Argentina and is found most commonly on rocks and as an epiphyte in trees. Variable in color with flowers from white to greenish and pink to magenta. This form is pink flowered, which seems to be on the rarer side. Foliage is ribbed or angled, about 3/8th to 1/2 inch wide and straight, not spiraled. The color is mostly green but will blush red when stressed by bright light or by withholding food or water.
CITES plant, no export.

After flowering it produces large raspberry-red fruits. This is an epiphytic to lithophytic species from eastern Brazil, south to Paraguay.
