Aechmea fasciata - Question
I have two Aechmea fasciata growing in a pot, each with Pup.
My question is - In the nursery, Home Depot, Lowe's or whereever Aechmea fasciata is sold, the outer leaves are long, drooping and and silvery - absolutely stunning. My Aechmea fasciata's outer leaves are short and lack the gray-silvery color of the ones I see in the stores.
How can I get mine to look as beautiful as the ones in the store? Do the grower shoot growth hormones or what into them?
