Properties and uses:
The Aechmea Primera is one of the most beautiful Aechmeas. Its silvery-grey foliage topped by its central, pink flower which has a diameter of de 20 cm make it the attraction in your lounge or your dining room !
To be grown in a pot or as an epiphytic.

Looking after advice:

The Aechmea thrives in light, bright spots, but not exposed to direct sun rays which can burn its foliage.
Very easy to grow, a light watering once a month, or once every two month is enough. It is also recommended to fill in the centre of the rosette regularly with distilled water.

Unfortunately, your Aechmea dies after flowering. But put your mind at rest, it generally leaves behind one or several rosettes which, once potted, blossom again two to three years later provided they get suitable care, warmth and good sunlight.
