HAVE: Cryptanthus very easy to grow

ken_ny(Z10FL)November 16, 2010

I currently have six varieies of rooted cryptanthus suitable for trading. They are terrestials related to bromeliads. They are growing in 2 to 2 1/2" pots. They all prefer shade/semi-shade. They like to stay moist but not wet.They are tolerant of a wide range of humidity and temperature - (50 to 100F is ok with 65-85F being ideal). The varieties I currently have are Black mystic, Snow Goose, Pink Starlite, Red Satin, Ruby and one no ID I am open to trading them for any unusual succulents I don't have.

They're all so beautiful! I'd have guessed they were bromeliads or sansevieria; I'd never heard of cryptanthus before. I sure love learning on these forums:) Of course, once I see it, I want it! My wish list is becoming ridiculous:P

Once I get organized, I might have something to offer that would appeal.

Happy gardening!
