Deuterocohnia brevifolia var. chlorantha

Often listed as Abromeitiellia chlorantha var. minima, this wonderful small-growing, mounding bromeliad is now classed as Deuterocohnia brevifolia var. chlorantha. We find it rather easy to grow with bright light and adequate water during the summer and a winter rest period. The green flowers in early winter are an added bonus. (Sorry, but I left out the word "water" during the first posting. Too late at night :) Thanks for the comments.)
Several of you have commented on Purr-Purr and I've passed on you compliments to her. Just hope she doesn't get a "big head" now!

Enjoy your plants...
and, if appropriate, your animals!


  1. Ooooo, I would love to be able to grow this guy in my garden:)
