Hailing from Atlantic rainforests of southeastern Brazil, Vriesea vagans is a remarkable plant species that catches the eye with its striking foliage. The leaves exhibit a captivating combination of lime green coloration with a dark burgundy, almost black base, with subtle burgundy hues on the leaf tips. Adding to its allure, the paddle-like inflorescence emerges on spikes that can grow up to 8 inches in height. The inflorescence itself showcases a vibrant red color, complemented by yellow petals.
