I hope it grows to the size that I thought it would be when it arrived.
One of the best cryptanthus that I have purchased from Tropiflora. Large beautiful red edged leaves with olive green centers.
I love Cryptanthus and lean toward the most colorful varieties. I think "Living Colors" now tops my list for color, after "Elaine". I also enjoy the contrast of the varieties that are dark with silver bands. In container gardens on my lanai, I mingle various Bromeliads and Succulents (very compatible!). I often use the "pot in pot" approach where I leave the C. in its pot and tuck it into surrounding plants that camouflage the inner pot. Pictured: Living Colors takes prime, bottom center position when mingled with varied plants.
