A pretty, small-growing, colorful species with a showy bloom. The foliage is green, with a dark spot at the tip, especially in strong light, and can range from 6 to 10 inches tall. The inflorescence is a scape to 8 inches tall with a cluster of bright yellow flowers forming a ball-like head. Good for full sun or shade.
NO HOLDING - MUST SHIP IMMEDIATELY
I had grown a clump of Aechmea calyculata years ago that was destroyed by a hurricane. It is one of my favorite smaller species of bromeliad with it's striking yellow inflorescence.
This past week I received a nice healthy pup from Tropiflora to add to my collection of bromeliads.
