This striking tropical Bromeliad makes a fantastic, low maintenance house plant - perfect for injecting a splash of colour into your home interior. Cryptanthus bivittatus produces layers of brightly coloured long pointed leaves which form a star shaped habit, hence its more familiar nicknames - Earth Star and Starfish Plant. These exotic plants are adapted to topical climates, therefore enjoy a warm, bright position in the home and particularly rooms with higher humidity levels such as kitchens and bathrooms. They’re also perfect for terrariums, providing a contrast in habit and colour when combines with other plants. Height: 15cm (6”). Spread: 20cm (8”).
Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
