A species from the Brazilian state of  Espírito Santo authored by Elton M.C. Leme.  The plant is a bright uniform green with flag-like leaves held high on long petioles.  Individual leaves can attain lengths more than 16" in length and 1 1/2" wide, however, because the leaves are held up high in a loose vase-shaped whorl the overall diameter is generally around 20".  The undersides of the leaves are just slightly scurfed with  longitudinal lines and the midrib is slightly pronounced with a keel the entire length of the leaf.

** For best results, we grow this Cryptanthus in a dirty Turface All Sport® mix, a half and half mixture of a light potting mix and Turface.  You may also try perlite or expanded perlite.
