One of the Kiwi range of vriesea hybrids bred by Andrew Maloy in New Zealand. It  develops beautiful dusky pink tones over its patterned leaves as it matures which takes about three years. It is being produced in tissue 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. If too much nitrogen it will lose colour.
