This is the true 'Rubra', with deep pink to orange tones in the leaves. It has been confused too many times with the mauve clone named 'Malva'. This Rubra becomes a spectacular plant!

The species Aechmea mulfordii is a perfect plant for landscaping or outstanding pots. It occurs in terrestrial conditions in coastal areas of Pernambuco and Bahia, in Eastern Brazil. In cultivation it grows much like Aechmea blanchetiana or Aechmea callichroma and needs some direct sun to develop the good colours and the perfect shape.
