This is a really pretty "Fireball" bromeliad. It is on special today. Bromeliads are similar to air plants but can be mounted in a potting soil/sphagnum moss mixture like an orchid. You can buy this one bare root (just the plant). The "Fireballs" are more of a dark green color right now. They will turn back to the burgundy/red color you see with sun exposure. These have been living in the green house. Choose the option with the bromeliad mounted in the slat basket if you would like. Complete care and mounting instructions are included with the order.
