Vriesea Gigantea 'Nova'
Vriesea gigantea 'Nova' is a remarkable cultivar derived from the original Brazilian species 'gigantea'. This clone showcases a breathtaking rosette that can reach an enormous width of 30 inches. Its strap-like green leaves have intricate tessellations in a light yellowish-green hue. As the plant matures, these striations gradually transition to an almost white shade, creating a visually stunning effect. 'Nova' thrives in shaded areas and is sensitive to frost, requiring protection in colder climates. Large specimens of this variety are highly sought after for interior and patioscape arrangements. With the right pot size and appropriate fertilizer, 'Nova' can reach its maximum size, showcasing its full potential. It bears a strong resemblance to the original wild clone 'gigantea', which is commonly observed as an epiphyte or lithophyte in its native habitat.
