Aechmea Shining Light is a stunning large and colorful bromeliad with dark maroon leaves and beads of small red and yellow flower buds. Likes deep shade to part shade and even a well lit position, not direct hot sun.
Plant under a tree or bamboo so the fallen leaves landing in the vase of the bromeliad provide all the nutrients. Prefers an orchid potting mix or a porous mixture such as equal parts bark chips, humus, peat moss and sand.
