I bought my first garden bromeliad, I have had bromeliads before but they were house plants, this one is for the garden and it is supposed to be winter hardy ! It is called fascicularia bicolor, it comes from Chili, it can stay in the sun, half shade or shade and is winter hardy till – 10 C°, wants sandy soil. I have never seen a bromeliad like this one, it is supposed to get a big red flower at the end of Summer. Has any of you experience with this plant? If so can you please tell me if it is an easy plant and is it really winter hardy ????
This is how it looks at the moment :
THE LEAFS ARE GREEN WITH A BIT OF RED
