Aechmea 'Phoenix' is a remarkable cultivar resulting from the crossbreeding of calyculata and recurvata. This resilient small-sized plant maintains a compact shape regardless of varying light conditions. The influence of the recurvata parent is evident in its upright and vase-like growth habit, contributing to its overall compact appearance. On the other hand, the calyculata parent adds a vibrant touch with its bright yellow flowering inflorescence. Aechmea 'Phoenix' is an excellent choice for landscapes, particularly when placed around rocks, creating a visually appealing and harmonious setting. Matures at about 12 inches tall.
Growth habit: Small
Light requirements: Strong filtered light: Prefers moderate levels of light, such as bright indirect light or filtered sunlight. Thrives in well-lit spaces without direct exposure to intense sunlight.
