Aechmea fulgens

19th October 2008

I have just been sent a young pup , which is currently rooting in the conservatory. It is supposed to be quite cold tolerant, but it will have to be a bit larger before I am prepared to try it without winter heating!

It isn't hardy enough to risk outside so it came indoors for the winter. Unfortunately it grows very slowly through the summer so it doesn't recover from any setback in the cold. This year the cold penetrated the window in the spare bedroom and the plant was lost.
