Overall information : Cryptanthus are very easy Bromeliads. Just keep them humid and sunny. After they flower they give approx 3-6 pups. Do not remove the pup untill it is 1/3 of the mum. Keep the mum long enough, sometimes they keep giving pups for several months. This Crypt. is VERY variable depending on the sunlight. In semi shade it will turn almost green, give it sun and it will burst in reds-pinks-yellow-greens !!!!
One package contains 1 healthy growing plant . We carefully remove the soil and wrap the roots in humid sterile coconut peat. Then we gently pack the rootball in a plastic bag . After that, we wrap the plant in newspaper and then in a strong cardboard box with Thai registered airmail. EMS is also possible but prices are on request.
In many cases we can provice different size and species. Please email us for more info.
