Aechmea nudicaulis 'Frosty The Snowman' is a cross of 'nudicaulis v. aequalis x nudicaulis 'Silver Streak' by Liza Vinzant of Hawaii. A fantastic and rare hybrid Billbergia with prominant white frosted banding, with maturity and high light levels some pinkish color can come through. The flower spike has bright red stem and bracts and vivid yellow flowers.
Aechmea nudicaulis is a fantastic and easy to grow 'tank type' Bromeliad native to central and northern South America. It grows on rocks and on trees and so in cultivation lends itself to being potted or mounted. You can allways spot Aechmea nudicaulis varieties and hybrids because the leaves are naturaly crinkled and indented in places. This species also has stolons which can travel a few inches from the parent rosette.
Here is a good sized pup/offset, similar to the pup on the left in the photo. Pot, compost and hanger available separately.
An amazing American hybrid, and one of the most striking nudicaulis varietys, was extremely happy to find it on Andys site, plant was a great size, condition. Thanks...
