Hohenbergia castellanosii

Mid sized bromeliad from the coastal restingas in Bahia, with an upright crown of lime-green wide leaves, eventually tipped in red. Young plants are all green, slightly mottled and tips become more and more red when the plant gets larger, especially if a bit stressed for sun, or cold. Then most of the leaves turn purple-red when the plant blooms.
