From time to time we are able to get only a few or just one individual plant that we don't carry on a regular basis or cannot get again. This is where you will find those plants. As soon as these few plants are gone, a different plant will replace it.

Cryptanthus are a type of bromeliad that is low-lying, and shaped like a star, sometimes earning them the common name "Earth Star".  They are as easy to care for as a standard Neoregelia bromeliad and do great in vivariums, especially mounted on backgrounds.  There are many different varieties of cryptanthus with colors ranging from deep reds to almost black.  Like most Bromeliads, they can change color shades based on their environment (temperature, humidity, lighting, etc.)  Some crypts can reach up to 12" across when matured.

Cryptanthus make great container garden and terrarium plants. They can also be grown as a houseplant.

 

Plant Size range from 3" - 4" across

Pot Size: 2.25"

 

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.
