Click image to enlarge

One of the Kiwi range of Vriesea hybrids bred by Andrew Maloy in New Zealand. It develops a lovely creamy yellow centre as it matures which takes about three years. It is being produced in tissue culture to supply the Australian market.

Will grow to 70cm high & 70cm wide.

Water - Likes a moist potting medium but well drained. As a guide, water daily in hot weather & weekly in winter.

Light - Bright - can take early morning or late afternoon sun / medium shadecloth

Fertilizer - Small amount of slow release, preferably higher in potassium than nitrogen. Also likes foliar fertiliser - seems to do well with slightly higher nitrogen than potassium.
