A handsome addition to this hardy family of small, colorful Aechmeas. Larger growing than most, these plants reach almost 12 inches tall. Their shape is somewhat bulbous, with swollen bases and leaves that constrict towards the top then flare out. The best feature is the color. This clone is rusty-red. Growing in high light helps keep the color bright. When blooming, the top of the plant flushes bright red with lovely purple flowers.
