Aechmea 'Bert'

Aechmea 'Bert' is a cross of orlandiana X fosteriana. Introduced by M.B.Foster, 'Bert' is another example of a Hybrid that is truly greater than the sum its parts (parents). It grows larger than either of its parents and is an especially hardy specimen. 'Bert' can be grown in full or partial sun and is especially striking when mounted. Its very tough roots will cling to wood or rock with amazing tenacity. When mounted, the shape and color are especially striking.

Many people get this plant confused with Aechmea fosteriana. Note the difference in the inflorescence on 'Bert'.
