Cryptanthus Bivittatus is a tropical plant in the Bromeliaceae family. Because of their rosette-shaped leaf arrangement and slow growth, they are more commonly known as Earth Stars. Cryptanthus species, like most bromeliads, are mainly grown for their interesting leaves, but they also produce small but beautiful white or pink blooms. However, the plants only bloom once before producing pups and dying. These plants have a three-year life cycle from pup to flowering plant. They are stunning and diverse tropical plant native to Brazil. The Bivittatus is a striking Cryptanthus with a cross banding of light and dark brown.

Please note
Our plants are shipped in their nursery pots as you see in the photos unless stated. Sometimes plants may have blemishes on the foliage. Blemishes won't affect the overall health or future growth of the plant; this is just the nature of plants sometimes. Plants ordered may differ slightly as not every plant is the same and the plant you receive may vary slightly in size, colour, and shape. Please take care when choosing your plants as some are poisonous to people and animals. Decorative pots and plants are all sold separately.
