AVAILABLE IN SPRING - Hohenbergia leopoldo-horstii is an outstanding exotic for collectors described in 1991 from Bahia, in NE Brazil. This bromeliad grows on hot rocky mountains at about 1000 m elevation. Rosettes are almost black. The leaf colour is very dark purple, coated with silvery fuzz but they turn really black as they age. The shape is unusual by itself and the whole plant looks like a "giant black artichoke". It blooms in winter with a long tall inflorescence.

Grow this species in full sun in order to achieve the best dark and compact growth. It grows faster in hot temperatures. Keep above 6 C in winter.

We offer a large sized 30-40 cm (12-16 ") rooted pup.
